Gold rush

Inventive minds have built and submitted their appliance to SUSE Gallery in the quest to win $10,000 and fame within the community. With the contest coming soon to a close, you can also submit your appliance before the 1st of November and win the big prize!
If you are not sure what this is all about, here is a brief overview of what you have to do:
  1. Build your  appliance using SUSE Studio
  2. Publish your appliance to Gallery and obtain your URL
  3. Complete the form following this link:
When competing you can choose to build a community appliance, something you plan to share with everybody or a commercial appliance, something you want to market. Your appliance will be reviewed by some renowned judges including Jason Brooks from eWeek, Steven Vaughn-Nichols of ComputerWorld, Sean Michael Kerner from InternetNews, Jim Zemlin from the Linux Foundation, Markus Rex Head of Linux for Novell and Jos Poortvliet from openSUSE. This is a great chance to get insight from the pros.

Building an appliance is really easy. It is also one of the fastest ways to package and distribute software for the cloud, as live system or for traditional installation. With our free appliance-building tool, SUSE Studio, developers can create many kinds of software appliances – the only limit is your imagination. To get some inspiration, you can checkout already built appliances at

The deadline for the contest is approaching fast, but you still have a few days for a last sprint. How would you spend your prize? Buy a new computer? Get a robot? Go to Hawaii? Don't hesitate, build your appliance, publish it on Gallery, and submit it to the contest. Dister is looking forward to your entry.
