Solutions Linux 2012 edit

    • Would you go again?
      • Of course!
    • What more can you do to make it better?
      • Have some openSUSE Tee shirts
      • Have more DVD
      • Have more space. We were 6 people for one table and 2 chairs for the 1st two days. (Last day we were 2).
      • Maybe have a better demo of openSUSE running on ARM. (Not only playing a video but have software to use it as a little computer).
      • Make some conferences (some ideas: Suse studio, open build service, prepare a server (FTP, HTTP, DHCP, etc) in 2 minutes with YaST, ...)
    • And next year?
      • Everyone enjoyed, so we will be there again!

Common Questions Asked edit

  • (Showing the promo DVD) Is it a CD/DVD? 32/64-bit? Live/installer? KDE/GNOME?
    • It is a "magic box". Two faces DVD, one for 32-bits, the other one for 64-bits, and you have an installer, a Live KDE and a live GNOME!
  • What is this board, is it the Raspberry Pi?
  • Why openSUSE?
  • What is the difference between SUSE and openSUSE?
  • What makes the difference between openSUSE and other Linux distributions?
