The openSUSE Forums Reach 40,000 Users

January 12th, 2010 by

The openSUSE Forums blew past another milestone on January 5th. More than 40,000 users are now registered on the openSUSE Forums!

The forums are currently at 40,445 users, and growing. Since the last time we posted a milestone link, the forums have not only added thousands of members, but also several language-specific forums in addition to the main English language forums. The openSUSE Forums now host Français (French), Magyar (Hungarian), Pусский (Russian), as well as links to external forums in Deutsch (German) and עִברִית (Hebrew).

If you’d like to see a new language-specific forum launched, leave a comment in the comments and suggestions thread on the openSUSE Forums (preferred), or touch base with Kim Groneman and/or Rupert Horstkoetter directly.

Congrats to the openSUSE Forums team! The openSUSE Forums were launched in June of 2008. It’s only taken 18 months to reach more than 40,000 users. Any bets on how long it takes to reach 50,000?

  1. No bets on 50,000 users, however, I love the openSUSE forums for their diversity. You can hang out there for a while each day and pick up a lot of info and tips. And newbies are treated well. Finally, even ordinarily hostile topics are discussed reasonably. It’s quite a rare community, indeed.

    I would like to know if there is anyone out there that uses a Radeon x1950pro graphics card sucessfully with openSUSE?
    Is there any particular version of Linux that anyone has the best results with this particular graphics card? It seems
    like this card is not supported by most distributions of Linux that I tried.


    • Hi Pete,

      thanks for your interest in openSUSE. May you please consult the forums regarding the question (Radeon x1950pro graphics card) you have, i.e. post a new thread there? You can use your existing(?) openSUSE login to access the forums.
