Re: [opensuse-project] Request for a Blue-Ray version of the upcoming openSUSE 12.2

I'm not sure if something like this is possible for 12.2 which is only just a
few days away... p
Also there are a few important questions here:
1. How widespread is blueray this days?
2. What does Linux support of those devices look like
3. How much of our market has blue ray devices

We should research on those topics and, if we see there is potential market, we
can look into investing time and men power into development and deployment of
blue ray media...

Best regards,

Eugene Trounev

Hi All,

openSUSE project has nearly done it's 12.2 release !

One great feature to have - is blue-ray disc (BD) install media, in
addition to current DVD media. Why ?
Because it allows you download once, install everywhere, and
blazing-fast speeds, saving a lot of user time later from downloading
packages on-demand.

Plus, it will once again let people enjoy the whole openSUSE
experience from a single media, and have a new marketing factor to
tell to the press release guys.

The BD media should include the full openSUSE repository on a single
media. One BD for 32-bit and another BD for 64-bit PC.
Availability should be via bittorrent protocol-only, if the FTP
server's capacity is limited.
As a side bonus, BD media will let enjoy full openSUSE on offline workstations.
BD media is risk-free bonus, a feature that will not introduce
regressions into current DVD media anyway, and in fact can be done few
days post-release, if time is an issue.

I'm looking forward into this release !

Best wishes and thanks to all the hard-working people,
