Opensuse is running on the PengPod 1040.  Its pretty basic at the moment, xfce an the menu and bars and mouse sized.  It does boot up provide a starting point.  We are hoping someone more familiar with the distro will want to come in and polish it up a little and maybe act as a community maintainer.  Please let us know if you are interested.

Also a reminder, our reddit AMA is starting in about 40 minutes.  I'll post a link up here once we start it.

    I use openSUSE on a tablet with an Atom CPU. But I chose it because it's implementation of Gnome3 worked perfectly for a tablet. My tweaks were mainly to get auto-rotation to work, and some policy changes to allow a simple user the permission to connect to wireless APs.

    Without Gnome3, I don't know if there is much advantage to using openSUSE.
