    Re: SuSe 8.0 (on its way)

    Linux technology and solutions-based provider SuSE said on Wednesday that its latest Linux operating system and applications package, SuSE Linux 8.0, will be broadly available for purchase on April 22.
    The German-headquartered open-source company said the new version is based on Version 2.4.18 of the Linux kernel and will offer increased security, the KDE 3 desktop, seamless installation and expanded multimedia capabilities for professional and private desktop users.

    Holger Dyroff, the head of SuSe's American operation, said SuSE Linux 8.0 offers an array of security levels, including mouse-click activation of SuSE Personal Firewall 2.

    In the event of theft, laptop and desktop data is protected by GNU Privacy Guard encryption, which allows only authorized users to read e-mail stored within the product. Version 8.0 also integrates professional e-mail and data security concepts and advanced security technologies, including OpenSSH, PAM and IPsec, he said.

    Installation procedures have been improved, with better automated hardware detection, while the SuSE system assistant, YaST2, will detect existing Windows partitions and make suggestions for allocating hard disk space and software selection. YaST2 also now comes with a new module for the activation of high-rate data transfer modes for hard disks, Dyroff said.

    "SuSE 8.0 will also include KDE 3, the latest graphical desktop for Linux, as well as KOffice with KWord, KSpread, KPresenter and an illustration module, and the e-mail client, KMail. It further enhances CD writing, viewing and editing videos and sound mixing with an editing studio and synthesizer," he said.

    The product will also support more than 1,200 drivers and include a range of Linux tools, including the Apache 1.3.23 Web server and the Samba 2.2.3a file and print server for Windows networks.

    The recommended retail price for SuSE Linux 8.0 Personal, which will include 60 days of installation support, is $49.95, while the Professional version will be $79.95 and have 90 days of installation support. The update to SuSE Linux 8.0 Professional Update will also be available at a cost of $49.95.

    Also:


    The All-Time Fastest Linux Installation


    Extensive selection of games
    This time, the car racing game Racer will sweep you away. SuSE is the first distributor to offer a game specially designed for kids: Tuxtype, a game with educational value. Scientific applications are also fun; if you are fond of astronomy, you will enjoy exploring the starry sky with Open Universe or with KStars

    Two things: Is the release date for 8.0 the American release date or is it the release date for all areas (I ask because I will be in Germany from 07 April until <shrugs shoulders&gt? And, is this KDE 3.0 going to be the beta edition or is it the full blown edition? Just wondering. I will do an independent search for those details later. Thanks.

    Hey, has anyone gone to Suse's website? Check out www.suse.de/, they have a commercial on it that is funny. Look for the one with the man in the aisle of store. I'm still looking for the German release date (please be around the seventh of April, please, please, please!!!!).
