SuSE, openSUSE Following in the footsteps of distributions like Ubuntu and Fedora, the openSUSE project has announced it will move to a fixed release schedule. However, contrary to the two aforementioned distributions, openSUSE will have an eight month release schedule. The new schedule was announced in an email by release manager Stephan Kulow.

As long as they don't prioritize the schedule over quality releases. I'd rather they hold a release back by a month to get some nasty bugs out than have it be released on time with serious problems.

Yeah, but why not 9 months?

6 is too little.
12 is too much.

Average is 9, which just happens to be what mother nature takes to create a child.

So i always thought 9 months would be the perfect timing.
