Can we buy a commercial SuSE Linux 10.2? If so, where / when?
openSUSE 10.2 (pyhsical boxes) are currently in production and should be dlivererd to distributors next week. That means first boxes could/should be on the shelf Dec 14/15. For NA openSUSE 10.2 will be available only through shopNovell.com. For EMEA
box business remains as is (in retail shops, in onlineshops etc.) and in different countries.

I don't know what the local jargon "EMEA" stands for, and I don't know what definition is applied to "business remains as is [for retail shops..etc]" but I can telly you that it is *NOT* the same since version 10.0.

Prior to 10.10 I could go to 'local' (Australian) Linux shops and find the option to *pre-order* SuSE at least 1 month in advance of release - which I always did. Now, there is no damn sign of the latest Suse- and the release is next week.

Novell marketing is stuffing up big time and whoever is in charge should have his/her bum severely kicked for not looking after the interests of the company.

Cheers.


tried lsl (linux system labs) my aussie distributor.

they don't know anything about it

:-{{


Yes I know. And neither does ELX.

Cheers.
