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 too.

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.

As we have the openSUSE 12.1 release upcoming, we should indeed think
about timeline. On one hand, this is a lot of work and we might overload
ourselves here. On the other hand, releasing this say 1 month after the
openSUSE 12.1 release, giving some attention to that release in the
magazine of course could be really cool...

In any case, be sure to copy-paste as much as possible from earlier
articles. Say the one I wrote about upgrading to Linux 3.0 and
Tumbleweed from a week or two ago... ;-)

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".
