New OpenSUSE embraces 64-bit ARM


From Computerworld:
The newly released OpenSUSE 13.1, also comes with the latest version of OpenStack, called Havana, and can work with computers secured by UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface).

The OpenSUSE Project, which manages the mostly volunteer-led development of OpenSUSE, has warned that the AArch64 version of the new distribution is still experimental, though it can be used to test ARM-based servers and operations. With this release, OpenSUSE joins Red Hat's community-driven Linux distribution, Fedora, and Canonical's Ubuntu, in offering an experimental Linux distribution that can run on 64-bit ARM processors.
