MJ Technology Tablet has openSUSE, Dual Boot

November 22nd, 2016 by

It’s official; the Warrior Tablet made by MJ Technology and powered by openSUSE is ready for the world; now it just needs funding through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.

Avid Linux users can reap the benefits of four 10.1” Linux tablets offered by MJ Techology. The specifications of the four tablets vary in power and cost, but all come with the power of Linux and openSUSE at the core.

“MJ Technology, a leader in affordable cutting edge tech, is pleased to introduce the MJ Technology Warrior series tablets powered by openSUSE,” said Mark Jun, CEO for MJ Technology.

The preinstalled image on the Warrior Tablet Series is GNOME on openSUSE Leap, but users are welcome to change/reinstall/use Tumbleweed/etc. Any hardware support will be upstream via the Open Build Service and will not impede different usage patterns, so there is no lock-in, which gives the user choice.

The tablets offer dual boot for Windows 10 or use openSUSE Leap as a sole operating system for personal use. System administrators needing to manage multiple servers remotely can fulfill needs with the World’s First actual Made-for-Linux x86/x64 Tablet.

openSUSE Mentors Blog about Google Summer of Code Experience

November 22nd, 2016 by

Mentors for this year’s Google Summer of Code blog about their experience being a mentor, the Mentor Summit at Google and the collaborative effort start an openSUSE mentoring page, 101.opensuse.org. View the blow here or read it below.

It is getting colder in Germany, so it’s a time to recap Google Summer of Code 2016. This year we had six great students and in August Google announced that all of our students successfully finished their projects. What great news!

All good things come to an end

This year was especially exciting as we did not make it into GSoC in 2015 and therefore all of our mentors and students worked particularly hard to prepare and realize this year’s edition.

Hernán Schmidt, a first time GSoC mentor, told us about “the great experience to guide a young developer and see him grow”. His student, Rishabh Saxena, who worked on the Open Source Event Manager (OSEM) writes in his final blog article that he learned test driven development and web security. He is now even participating in this year’s Mozilla Winter of Security!

Ana Maria Martinez Gomez, who also worked on OSEM, reports about the great experience of working in an Open Source community and attending the openSUSE Conference in Nuremberg.
