SUSE LINUX 9.1 Launches at CeBIT Hannover

"64-bit Linux" debuts in April/May

"Users will see a three- to five-percent performance increase in the same machine under the new software," said Charlie Ungashick, Novell's director of product marketing - referring to the fact that, because Linux 2.6 is more efficient, users' computers would be better able to handle multiple streams of audio and visual media, as well as use Linux with 64-bit central processors. 

This is the trade show debut of the complete Linux package for personal users with Linux kernel 2.6 and desktop KDE 3.2, and Horst Nebgen, Managing Director of Novell Germany and Regional Vice President Central Europe, explained that it was Novell's first appearance at CeBIT since acquiring its two new product divisions -- SUSE LINUX and Ximian.

"We now offer enterprises a complete Linux-based IT infrastructure from the server to the desktop," said Nebgen." Combined with proven Novell products like NetWare or eDirectory, enterprises are provided with independence and the freedom to decide for the platforms and solutions that best meet their requirements," he added. 

Marina Walser, Marketing Director Central Europe at Novell and Cambridge, was vocal too:

"The effective deployment of IT as well as the increase of flexibility and cost reduction are the central issues for enterprises in this age of low budgets. At the CeBIT trade show, we will present solutions by means of which we can assist enterprises in achieving these goals. One example for this is the resource management which enterprises can use to consolidate all systems within a very short time. The reduced complexity of the IT infrastructure provides an enormous saving potential." 

SUSE LINUX 9.1 will be in stores from the end of April.

Wow, Mandrake's low scores really surprised me. I've been using it for quite a while, and find it to be the best there is for the desktop. It's sitting there right above Gentoo, and with gentoo's current growth, will probably be at the bottom in about a year.

I think mandrake has one of the best desktop distros around. I had some friends who installed fedora a few weeks back. They just made it a little too un-linux for me. Mandrake still maintains that linux feel, without making everything a bitch to use.

But your favorite desktop distro isn't being counted here BECAUSE NETCRAFT ISN'T POLLING YOU HOME COMPUTER

from Netcraft.com 03/18/04 08:20:36 AM EST

Good to see LinuxWorld recognizes that SuSE is now SUSE (all caps). If the logo still looks like "SuSE", that's just because the chameleon's sitting on it!

statBoy 03/18/04 08:14:51 AM EST

If you look at the numbers, RH has more installations than all the other distros combined

Of course the percentage is slightly less than the others.

SuSE has sparc port which is fully supported. Debian has a reputation of being BEHIND in library support etc. For years. They're just now improving it. And that is WHY Debian lost so much market share with Linux users starting in 1997 or so.

Who the hell is running anything on sparc these days? It's hardly worth the trouble. x386 hardware is better, faster, cheaper. Using "runs on sparc" as a yardstick to measure a Linux distribution's quality is just...off the point

question 03/18/04 08:11:50 AM EST

Will it run on a sparcstation? Both Debian and Gentoo are the only two usable UP TO DATE distros that will run on a sparcstation. They obviously care to encompass EVERYONE who might use their OS.

MonkeyBusiness 03/18/04 07:50:30 AM EST

So much more talk of GNOME than we've ever seen from SUSE before. Go, Miguel de Icaza!!!
