Novell Announces Availability of SUSE Linux 10.0

What's interesting about this version is how it's being tested (it's in RC1 right now):
SUSE Linux 10.0 is created by the openSUSE project, a recently launched community initiative sponsored by Novell that promotes the use of Linux everywhere. A first for Novell, SUSE Linux 10.0 will include code changes and bug fixes initiated with developer input from across the worldwide Linux community.
In the past, SUSE has been criticized for two things, (1) no way the Linux community (outside SUSE developers) could participate in its development, and (2) YaST wasn't Open Source. When Novell bought the SUSE company they GPL'ed YaST and now they've made community involvement possible through OpenSUSE. It's the Novell equivalent of the Fedora Project.
