openSUSE's Douglas DeMaio, who does marketing, public relations and strategy for the project, will give an overview of openSUSE 2016. From education to the new openSUSE Powered Tablet, this keynote talk will touch on everything from emerging opportunities for the project to empowering community members.

openSUSE (pronunciation: /ˌoʊpənˈsuːzə/), formerly SUSE Linux and SuSE Linux Professional, is a Linux-based project and distribution sponsored[5] by SUSE Linux GmbH and other companies. It is widely used throughout the world. The focus of its development is creating usable open-source tools for software developers and system administrators, while providing a user-friendly desktop, and feature-rich server environment.

The openSUSE Project community, sponsored by SUSE, develops and maintains SUSE Linux distributions components. openSUSE is the successor to SUSE Linux Professional.

Beyond the distributions and tools, the openSUSE Project provides a web portal for community involvement. The community develops openSUSE collaboratively with its corporate sponsors through the Open Build Service, openQA, writing documentation, designing artwork, fostering discussions on open mailing lists and in Internet Relay Chat channels, and improving the openSUSE site through its wiki interface. openSUSE offers a stable base with its openSUSE Leap version. Users that prefer more up-to-date free software can use its rolling release distribution Tumbleweed. Users can also use the Open Build Service. Moreover, the flexibility of openSUSE makes it easy to re-purpose for specific goals like running a web- or mail server.[8]

Like most Linux distributions, openSUSE includes both a default graphical user interface (GUI) and a command line interface option. Users of openSUSE may choose several desktops environments GUIs like KDE Plasma, GNOME, LXDE and Xfce. openSUSE supports thousands of software packages across the full range of free software / open source development.
