Again time to sum up news that didn’t make it to an own story here: At LinuxWorld San Francisco it was announced that SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, which is based on the openSUSE distribution, will be preloaded on systems of Dell and Lenovo. DistroWatch.com has interviewed Stephan Kulow about his new role as openSUSE project manager. Tomer wrote in to inform us about the chameleon.org.il portal he founded which offers forums, articles, chat and you can even test-drive openSUSE via NX. openSUSE artwork is now developed in a new SVN repository. Last but not least, a court ruled against SCO, stating that Novell is the owner of the UNIX copyrights.

The Bug Slashing Weekend has come to an end, and we are happy to report that it was a huge success! Countless old bugs were slashed, updated, and looked over, though for the majority of the time it was more of a Bug hunting weekend in that we were trying to discover and file all openSUSE 10.3 Beta 1 bugs.
Among other things, the weekend consisted of up to 50 people in #opensuse-bugs around the peak period, 2200 posts being made on the IRC channel (excluding bugbot comments), 108 bugs being filed against openSUSE 10.3 on the weekend alone, and 107 bugs being marked as “resolved”. Thanks to everyone for making it a great Bug Weekend!
Discussion on the upcoming openSUSE 10.3 is still encouraged in the #opensuse-factory IRC channel; the Bug Slashing wiki page will also contain up-to-date information on ways in which you can help test the openSUSE distribution.
