Newsstand and DVD subscriber copies of this issue come with this month's openSUSE 11.0 DVD. OpenSUSE is the community arm of the venerable SUSE Linux – one of the oldest and most popular Linux distributions in the world.
Inside openSUSE 11.0, you'll find KDE 4.0, Gnome 2.22, and Linux kernel 2.6.25. The latest openSUSE also comes with a new installer, a major upgrade to the software management system, and what Novell calls a "plethora of improvements."
You'll find new Compiz 3D desktop effects, as well as the landmark 1.0 releases of a pair of open source favorites: the Banshee media player and the famous Wine API, which lets you run Windows applications on Linux systems. Other improvements include KDE's new Plasma desktop shell and the Kepas file-sharing tool.
Linux kernel 2.6.25
glibc 2.8 branch
