Welcome to this year's 24th issue of DistroWatch Weekly! This is openSUSE's week as one of the oldest and most popular Linux distributions prepares for its highly ambitious release. Will the project's switch to Qt 4.x toolkit be a success? And how will the integration of the shaky KDE 4.0.x code into the distribution be received? These are some of the questions many readers are asking before the Thursday release of openSUSE 11.0. In the news section, Mandriva releases Flash 2008.1, a portable distribution on an 8 GB USB key, Debian clarifies the beta status of "Lenny", Linux Mint publishes an important security advisory for one of its utilities, and Sabayon Linux announces the imminent arrival of the final beta for its upcoming version 3.5. Also in this issue, a reader-contributed review of PC/OS 8.04, an Ubuntu based distribution with a BeOS-like user interface, links to two excellent interviews with Mark Shuttleworth, a hands-on guide on turning FreeBSD into a desktop system, and a report on how Microsoft intends to prevent Linux from becoming the operating system of choice on low-cost laptops. Happy reading!
