Microsoft has released Windows 8 to manufacturers. That means
Windows 8 devices will appear on store shelves as soon as the
makers can build them, test them and ship them. There's going to be
a humongous marketing push from Microsoft to get them into the
hands of as many people as possible.

Red Hat / Fedora has a plan. Canonical / Ubuntu has a plan.
Attachmate / openSUSE? Bueller? Bueller?


There seems to be a lot of plans and talk of plans, yet nothing has
eventuated. Yet...

I'm sure the openSUSE developers would be happy to receive one or more
