At the SUSE/Novell offices in Germany, we had a great launch party. With free beer, BBQ, sunshine, a clown and openSUSE 11.3 released, it was a great atmosphere!
More than 100 people showed up: some Novell employees, some former colleagues, and also many folks whose faces I haven’t seen before. We were overwhelmed and excited by this and after an hour Michael Löffler had to buy some more meat for the BBQ.
I gave a short demo about some of the highlights of openSUSE 11.3. I demonstrated GNOME 3 preview with GNOME Shell, the new tracker indexer, KDE Plasma Netbook interface, ksuseinstall, the LXDE desktop, SpiderOak and zypper.
I also showed Bernhard Wiedemann’s great installation video
Everybody was excited how fast the installation went!

I’ve seen many interesting discussions and already the first plans discussed for openSUSE 11.4.
Thanks to Tom, Michl, Omar, Eva, Christopher, Susanne and everybody else that helped to make this launch party a really great party!
