December 2008 marked the appearance of a new version of the openSUSE linux distribution, namely 11.1. This was probably the most beautiful moment that most openSUSE communities around the world celebrated. In our lands, the launch event of openSUSE 11.1 in December culminated with the appearance of the openSUSE Romania Community. Like any beginning it was slow, but with the transition in 2009 users started to register both on the site and on the forum. Today the community is a landmark for openSUSE users who need help but also for those who want to contribute.
