On its initial release, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (SLED10) met widespread acclaim for it’s smoothly polished look and feel, and some of the interface updates that it introduced to the GNOME desktop. Now with Service Pack 1 targeted for a spring 2007 release, we catch up with the woman in charge of SLED10 usability, Anna Dirks, to find out how her team makes SLED10 so dang sexy. Then we’re off on another wild ride with Dave “Slasher” Mair and Randy “The Tip Master” Goddard in News from Support.

- In the pre-interview, Anna explained that her name is pronounced “AH-na.” Said Anna: “My name doesn’t rhyme with Banana.” Moments later, Erin welcomes her onto the show as “Anna,” perfectly rhyming it with Banana.
- Anna really talks that fast, and she really sounds that sweet. Ted intends to nominate her for “Nicest Linux Community Member 2007.”
- We had to edit out a significant amount of laughter after Dave got us with the “Slash-My-Slash-Throat” comment.
- Notice how little stuff there is besides the two main segments? We were afflicted with the podcaster’s equivalent of writer’s block.
