           Sneak Peeks at Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon and OpenSuSE 10.3


   Jason Perlow, Sr. Technology Editor, Linux Magazine, and Advisory
   Architect, IBM Global Technology Services, will be presenting a sneak
   peek at Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon" and OpenSuSE 10.3, updated versions
   of two popular Linux distributions currently under development.

   Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon 7.10, upon its release in the Fall of 2007, will be
   the latest incarnation of the world's fastest growing Free Software
   Linux distribution. Built upon the technology in Debian, targeted
   towards a wide range of end users and sporting the lastest Linux Kernel
   2.6.22, it will have the latest implementation of GNOME, FireFox,
   OpenOffice, and other useful Open Source applications, as well as
   support for a wide array of devices including wireless networking and
   3D accelerated video drivers thru open source and "restricted"
   proprietary device drivers from 3rd parties. Ubuntu, which was first
   released in 2003 by South African billionaire Mark Shuttleworth, has
   quickly usurped Fedora as the most downloaded Linux distribution on the
   Internet.

   OpenSUSE 10.3, also due in the fall, is the next version of Novell's
   popular Open Source and community-based Linux Distribution. Derived
   from SuSE Linux Professional, which used to be a commercial product,
   OpenSUSE 10.3 is both a bleeding-edge technology demonstrator for
   Novell's future enterprise products and an end-user Linux distribution
   for power users that is packed full of software applications, advanced
   desktop/workstation Linux technology as well as the very latest in Open
   Source development tools. Distributed on DVD media and engineered at
   Novell's research facilities in Nuremburg, Germany, it is the literal
   Mercedes Benz of Linux distributions.
