producers of the SuSe Linux
distribution will announce at the upcoming Linux World Expo in San Francisco that they plan to create an open source project similar to Fedora
for the SuSe Professional edition. This is great news for the Linux community since this distribution has been growing in popularity especially on the desk top for some time now. I run SuSe 9.1 Professional in my ham shack and I like it. I chose SuSe because they include a database with their office suite that is similar to Microsoft Access. Other distributions include MySQL or other database engine but no front end software. If you are interested in working with databases this should be of interest.
