Novell has announced the availability of its free openSUSE 10.3 Linux OS distribution.

To improve the user experience, openSUSE 10.3 includes a flexible Linux-Windows dual-boot configuration, improved user interface, Microsoft Office file compatibility with the latest OpenOffice.org office productivity suite, and enhanced multimedia support.

Andreas Jaeger, director of the openSUSE project, said, "OpenSUSE 10.3 provides a stable and state-of-the-art operating system based on Linux kernel 2.6.22, and it contains a large variety of the latest open source applications for desktops, servers and application development."

Enhancements to openSUSE 10.3 include the newest versions of the Gnome and KDE desktop environments, including a KDE 4 preview.

OpenOffice.org 2.3 makes sharing files with Microsoft Office users easy, said Novell, and the newest version of AppArmor protects the Linux OS and applications from attacks, viruses and malicious applications.

OpenSUSE 10.3 also now includes MP3 support out of the box for Banshee and Amarok, which are the default media players in openSUSE.
