Leaving Opensuse, Finding Kubuntu or Fedora

Posted in GNU/Linux, KDE, OpenSUSE, Ubuntu at 8:44 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

We previously listed some short stories about people who gave up on Novell’s Linux and moved on to other distributions. Here is another story, which involves someone who flip-flopped, but ultimately decided to live without Novell.

You might have read my earlier article about moving to OpenSuSe from Kubuntu. I couldn’t resist the temptation to move back to Kubuntu. I didn’t see anything wrong with OpenSUSE, but I wasn’t comfortable using that compared to (K)Ubuntu, so I downloaded the latest Kubuntu Feisty Fawn beta and burnt it in a CD.

Kubuntu might not be for everyone, but let this inspire you. If Novell’s installed base shrinks, the message to them will be clear(er). The following comment indicates that others seek Opensuse alternatives as well.

Fedora 7 Test 3 – featuring KDE live CD


Now I’ve a good reason to remove opensuse

Novell this week dissolved its Linux Impact Team (LIT), headed by Nancy Faigen, and rolled the members of LIT into the regional sales teams.

With the possibility of layoffs on the way, it has become clear that Novell needed the community’s support.
