So pleeeeease somebody, enlighten me :-) Is there any strategy available?

I have no clue about Novell strategy, but looking at what is
available, we can have some ideas.

Say... Just this morning I was fed of the problems I have with 11.1
and wondered if I was not to change to an other distro, so I looked
around me.

Interesting, but not what I had in mind.

What I would like to assist in is to make opensource even more
available than it is tday. Today it's usable by technologists for some
everyday work, but far from all.

I ave tried setting up a media server wiht different linux solutions.
It's not easy. I have tried syncing my phone with linux applications,
not the easiest task. My so has tried linux, after being pushed by me,
to get a solution to move media and transcode media to his Creative
Zen. Nightmare solution, eventually gave up and moved to Windows.

These are everyday applications that users could benefit very much
from. Not only having the building blocks, but actually having a
consistent GUI (an GUI it MUST for Mr.User) that can handle media

As far as I know openSUSE oes not even have a selected DLNA/UpnP
solution. Please correct me if i'm wrong.

I believe that th Linux kernel and the desktop environments are more
than good enough. It's applications that are needed. User centric

So , not to bash what is, but I'd love to se a user sentric stratey
that I can assist in becoming a reality.
