Posted on: 07/14/2006 09:34 AM
SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha 2 has been released. Here the release announcement:
We're glad to announce SUSE Linux 10.2 Codename "Basilisk Lizard" Alpha2.
It's downloadable from today on and will be the last community/consumer distribution called SUSE Linux. We'll rename SUSE Linux into openSUSE.
With current naming we experienced confusion internally and externally between the project openSUSE and the distribution created there. And especially with the new naming of our Linux business products (SUSE Linux Enterprise 10) the differentiation between our business products and community/consumer product is not intuitive. Therefor the upcoming community/consumer version will be named openSUSE 10.2. We'll implement first name changes with Alpha 3 starting directly after Alpha 2 and will have a fully renamed distribution with Beta 1 in Nov.
We're very sorry that suggestions like SuSE Linux Voyager, Gecko Linux or Novora didn't make it ;-). But according to the discussions on the mailinglist openSUSE is one of your favorites and will make openSUSE consistent in all.
SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha2 is slowly moving to 10.1. We have not done any real major updates yet but lots of minor changes, I list some below:
