Write in-depth review of openSUSE 12.1 for tech website

completed by: Terence Lam

mentors: Manu Gupta, Matt Barringer

Reaching out to media is important way to let people know about new openSUSE version. openSUSE 12.1 could use a nice, in-depth review. Something which goes deeper than the usual "it looks nice". Go into things like YaST and it's functionality, the available software on and one-click-install, the several desktops, things like that... You will have to install openSUSE 12.1 and give it a serious work-out; test many of the tools in YaST, play with all desktops (including taking screenshots) and go over at least some of the major features. You will need to describe the process, your thoughts and difficulties you encounter. You will learn how to write a technical articles and get some in-depth coaching on how to keep a text interesting and how to keep your audience in mind.
