Just wondering, are there any plans to have an openSUSE version
for tablets ? Now that Intel has switched from MeeGo to Tizen
and Android seems increasingly popular for embedded systems how
obout openSUSE ? Are there any plans to cover this market ?

The arm list may provide some additional information;


There seems to be little done in this direction on arm list. What I
mean is that Intel has already a tablet (ExoPC) and a notebook with
touchscreen (Lenovo), both using Intel Atom processors, so support
for touch screens (already provided by Qt framework) and a better
GUI would be needed.

Perhaps on the list, but did you checked recently the number of ARM
packages on the OBS? Over 35K Compared to hardly any a couple of
months. ago.
20215 under repo/Ports:/ARM:
17350 under repo/openSUSE:/Factory:/ARM
And a couple of users also (Meizirkki:, Milliams, bmanojlovic:,
joeyli:, mjh_haha, /rmax:, worldcitizen:, xkitty68:)

I think that the steam is coming out of a couple of ears. Kudos!
Not a complete distro yet, but much work has been done!
There is also supply issues with hardware, but I see suppliers are
getting the pandaboard in stock. And don't forget FunkyPenguin... ;)
