    Has any work been done to add the Samsung SCX-4200 printer into SUSE 11.0. Trying to load it from there web site does not work.

  2. I would love to know everything about version 11.1 so I can discuss it on my Linux Blog!

    Have a GREAT Holiday Season!

    I have been participating in the OpenSuse Project since 10.0 and have seen many releases. With version 11.1 the weekly new reports to
    the numbers for all openSUSE project products are this week:

    * All Open Reports: 4494 (+120)
    * Blocker: 13 (+2)
    * Critical: 234 (+10)
    * Major: 738 (+25)
    * Normal: 2393 (+75)
    * Minor: 478 (+6)
    * Enhancements: 638 (+2)

    In all this time I have never seen a potential Release Candidate with so many Open and/or new Bugs. Thankfully our QA – Andreas has the sense call for a second release candidate. Personally I would like to see a RC3 if the amount of new bugs increases with RC2 AND a sizable hole put into the current bugs.
    Earlier in a previous weekly news I made the comment that I would like to see fewer releases and more stability. The cost in man hours for re-tooling a new potential release is huge and personally I would like to see no more that 1 new RC every second year and replace re-tooling with Service Pack updates.
    Happy to open this up for everyones thoughts.

    I would also like to mention the reason why OpenSuse stands above all other Distros is the shear passion and technical skill of everyone involved in the project from the U.K to New Zealand.
    Without passion we never achieve inspiring software and we become an institution bogged down at the mercy and direction of Marketing/Profit an Share-holders.
