Re: 11.2 Roadmap and Fixed Release Cycle for openSUSE
An 8 month cycle that WFM! 6 months doesn't work as we here have just found out, & at Ubu despite what Canonical wants everyone to believe it doesn't work for them either. 8 months though is enough time to stay new yet get it right. That getting it right part is going to be very important over time.
We'll be getting more people here. That's because of the way MSFT is going to do Windows 7 they're already planning on doing it the way they did Vista, selling Home but putting all the good stuff in Pro. Then "nicely" not telling their customers that until after they install it. Oh they'll give you free access to install it on your Home system,but they don't tell you that either. When I tried Vista that's what they did to me.(good thing I wasn't keeping it)
This means that when these "Windows Brats" come here they're going to want something that just works. They'll be in no mood for learning anything just get it working 5 minutes before I install it!
While it's a certainty 11.2,11.3,12.0... won't be perfect even after 8 months. There's probably a good chance we won't have screwy things like having to put cdrom & disk under user to use the CD/DVD burner after installation. New linux entrants especially Windows Brats wounldn't stand for that!
Challenge your preconceptions, or they will challenge you.
