in brief Software vendor Novell plans to make the latest 10.1
version of its SUSE Linux operating system available late this
"SUSE Linux 10.1 Final will be released on Thursday, 11th of
May," a Web site which coordinates development of the software currently states.
Version 10.1 of SUSE Linux is understood to be an important
milestone for Novell as it prepares to release the landmark
version 10 of its business-focused SUSE Linux Enterprise
(formerly known as the Novell Linux Desktop) operating system
later this year.
The company's president Ron Hovsepian has flagged version 10 of the
operating system as mature enough to kickstart enterprise
deployments in the next 12 to 18 months.
