Hey :)

@Kim: Cool, hope to see something ready soon!

Regarding Stuart's remarks, I am not sure if we can currently support
a periodical issue, however, we can start with this one issue
regarding past year openSUSE experience and see how it goes, right?

We are already thinking about design/graphics and sponsors, but
personally I think it is a little too early for that. I believe we
should first start gathering some material and when we have at least
half the articles we need, then we can also focus on the other aspects

So basically my idea is, let's get to work regarding articles and the
sooner we have them the better so as to start preparing the other
details too.

Our timeline here is little limited too, we want to do something in
the next couple months, we wouldn't want for it to take longer.

Hi all!

One of the ideas that popped up during the marketing hackfest here
today was that of making an openSUSE magazine with focus on the
conference proceedings and the cool stuff that happened since the last
conference. The magazine would contain articles on the main highlights
of the past year (Year is the time period between two conferences),
interviews with key people, reviews and articles about the current
conference etc.

We would like to get a feedback on the idea and a few key topics that
you think should be covered. Any authors who want to help with
articles, please say so on the mailing list as we need more people to
work on the articles. The topics, however, should focus on either key
events that took place since last conference (like tumbleweed,
evergreen, connect etc) or should be an article about oSC11 (or any
particular session of it). We would also like a few miscellaneous
topics that relates to openSUSE and linux at large.

I hope all of you would like the idea and would contribute to our
efforts to make openSUSE even more famous and awesome. Please let us
know your thoughts (& your willingness to help).

For additional info you can reply to the mailing list or send an email
to differentreality@xxxxxxxxx ( plz use as subject:  openSUSE magazine

Hi all,

I think it would be fine to tell about success stories, so that newbies can
see that openSUSE is a serious operating system, not only for private use.
This would include, that we also tell about former dristributions.  The
conclusion should be that openSUSE is in commercial use, so this can`t be bad
to use it on my private desktop too.

OpenSUSE Ambassador

Could this include stories from SuSE Linux Professional as well as
openSUSE because how much difference is their between the two for end
users other than updates and such.

We really do need something to be able to give to users promoting us
specifically over Ubuntu and Windows.

On a daily basis I get an equal amount of "I am happy with Windows" as I
do "I already use Linux 10. somat or "Ubuntu".
