| orders only, the Mini 100e includes a 10.1-
| inch display, customizable case, network 
| activity light, and a 1.66GHz Atom N455

| Interestingly, a pre-release version of this 
| netbook was on view at Computex earlier this 
| month at the Novell booth. At the time, I 
| assuemd it was a Classmate PC, but looking 
| closer, it becomes clear that the design is 
| similar but not identical to computers based 
| on Intelâs reference design.


openSUSE Linux seeks own direction, more autonomy from Novell

,----[ Quote ]
| The developers behind openSUSE are drafting 
| a new "community statement" as part of a 
| broader effort to define a technical 
| strategy for their project. The purpose of 
| the community statement is to describe the 
| kind of collaborative environment that the 
| project wants to create as it refines its 
| technical focus.
| [...]
| The challenges are not insurmountable, 
| however, and a foundation would definitely 
| open the door for other vendors to take a 
| more active role. Novell's Michael LÃffler 
| wrote a blog entry last year in which he 
| described the reasons why an openSUSE 
| foundation would be desirable. He makes a 
| case that openSUSE would benefit from having 
| a vendor-neutral organization to encourage 
| contributions from other companies besides 
| Novell.

| caching solution that will be the base of 
| upcoming KDE PIM versions, notably KDEâs 
| address book, email client and calendar app.
