openSUSE LINUX 12.1 to get a Beta Version!

The openSUSE project has announced that the upcoming sixth milestone release of version 12.1 of the openSUSE operating system will be reclassified as a beta. Jos Poortvliet, the openSUSE community manager for SUSE Linux, says that the change "reflects the state of this milestone, being ready for more extensive testing".

When the beta is released, Poortvliet asks the community to "give it a good workout", suggesting that they organise Beta Pizza parties all around the world. According to release team coordinator Stephan "Coolo" Kulow, "the sixth milestone has sometimes gotten less testing than it deserved. We want to ensure the quality and stability of openSUSE and give users the best experience as possible.”

The openSUSE 12.1 beta is scheduled to arrive on Thursday, 22 September, and will be followed by two release candidates (RC); the final version is to be released on 11 November 2011. Developers, testers and early adopters who plan to test the upcoming beta are asked to report any bugs that they find so that they can be fixed before the final release.

The most recent stable release of the distribution is version 11.4 from March of this year.

openSUSE is my personal favorite distro and I can't wait to get to test out the 12.1 Beta!  Linux in general has come a long way in the past couple of years.  Especially some of the major distros such as openSUSE, Ubuntu, Mandriva Linux, Etc.

I can't wait to see Linux Distros on Virtually Every PC in the world!  We truly should just adopt Linux as the TRUE "Universal OS" which every company, developer, etc. supports and contributes to it; thus, making a truly "Ultimate and Universal OS" that eliminates the barriers and problems with the compatibility issues and everything else which is really only holding the software back and keeping it many steps behind he hardware...

Free, Linux, Open-Source!  That's the future of Computers and the Internet as well as Tablets and Smart Phones!
