Wahoo! Bring on SUSEcon. If it's half as great as last year it's worth
it, but this year we have SLES 12 coming so that should be awesome. Being
able to do the certification testing there was also really convenient last
time, not to mention priced really well.

Good luck.

Yeah, Wahoo indeed! :)

It has been a great conference (been there twice now), and I'm expecting this year will be a great one as well (with SLE12 around the corner as Aaron also mentions).

The last two SUSEcon's had very interesting, good & strong sessions. I had a hard time choosing which ones to go to, allot of good choices. So I am very curious to see the sessions list for this year.

And sure, it's not Vegas or Hawaii... but still great place to be to learn, get together & have fun. :)

Cheers,
Willem

I keep hearing how different SLE 12 is going to be. Anyone have a quick
summary of the core changes.

That was not that helpful. I was curious what I keep hearing, about how
different SLE 12 is from SLE 11. I do not see any meaningful changes
that affect much of anything in the link you provided.

Have you considered joining the beta?

How is this?

How can you prefer a silver platter? You're the one who sends out reams
of information rather than creating videos. I figured you like receiving
links to information as much as you liked giving them. ;-)

You misconstrue. I like useful links. :) That last one was better,
thank you. Wicked, install tweaks, KVM/Xen enhancements seem like the
issues people must be talking about then, as being a big change from SLE 11.

I haven't been following the developments with SLE12 that closely these last months (too much other stuff keeping me from delving in). But there are enough things going on I find quite exhilarating with this new version release. And I look forward to hear all about it!

A couple of things from the top of my head:

-The switch to systemd is also one that will take some getting used to for allot of SLES admins (one of many blogs on the matter: https://www.suse.com/communities/conversations/systemd-is-not-about-systeme-d/).

-Btrfs, as it has evolved and matured further, will be the default filesystem for the root partition. This will give the system very versatile rollback options.

-Docker (further leveraging Linux Containers) officially finds it way into SLES with this next version : https://www.suse.com/communities/conversations/welcome-docker-to-suse-linux-enterprise-server/

-Then there is "stuff", which is not directly tied to the SLE12 release, but is likely to find it's way into it, like "kernel live patching", aka kGraft (https://www.suse.com/communities/conversations/kgraft-live-kernel-patching/).

-Lots of good stuff going on around the OpenStack project which just keeps getting more and more traction (which SUSE bundles as an easy to install & upgrade distro with SUSE Cloud).


...and much more around all that.


There just seems to be allot happening around SUSE (and Linux in general) this last year. :)
