at the upcoming SUSE Linux 10.0
and talks with Greg Mancusi-Ungaro,
Novell's director of marketing for Linux and open source software.
"MozillaQuest: What are the reasons SUSE shifted from a closed
beta program to an open beta program? Greg Mancusi-Ungaro: We've done
more than just shift the beta program; we are opening the entire
development process to public participation. Through the openSUSE project,
we are inviting the community to really shape the future SUSE Linux. The
bugs reported by the community during the SUSE Linux beta cycles are
important, but by no means do those bugs represent the total activity of
the community. SUSE Linux benefits from publicly submitted package
requests, usability/design proposals, feature requests, etc.
