Description:
Of course we all know that linux is great and a reliable system but the
latest focus is trying to get new users to adopt it. Is it possible
from a developer standpoint to integrate a system including packages
like alien for deb etc, that would allow SUSE to user either deb or rpm
packages or better yet introduce a brand new file type say .lnx for
linux (easier since the intro for SUSE build service) to begin a
movement that would allow packages to be cross compatible between linux
systems so long as the kernel version is suppported?
This would bring a unifying and innovative solution to a common issue
for linux systems. Of course a standard would have to be set on the
binaries to ensure proper dependency resolution between systems would
be accomplished, but SUSE might actually be able to lead the way!
