For the server?
I was unable to find an openSUSE distribution for a server I am trying to build. All distributions offered for download are desktop distributions, and once you select a graphic desktop, you are unable to remove it from the installation set.
So, what is in a server?
- No graphic desktop.
- Rich server environment, fully customizable:
- the SSH daemon on by default,
- LAMP preinstalled and preconfigured with HTTPS on,
- default init level 3,
- assorted servers you might need,
- an opportunity to install virtual machines,
- an option to select another kernel.
The installation screen should be server-centric, not desktop-centric as it is now.
Is the desktop kernel the best one for a server?

The following link is mentioned on the shipped media to get a DVD with the complete source-code for 11.3. "www.novell.com/products/suselinux/source_code.html"
This link redirects to http://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Distribution
Thus we need to make sure, that we advertise the source DVD here. Thanks.
I would add a link to the actual roadmap here. Also, for this particular release coming up, I would mention WHY exactly we don't name it 11.5 or 12.0 but 12.1.
