Novell and Ximian "Someone just asked me whether, now that Novell's become buddies with Microsoft, I'll be turning away from Novell/SUSE as one of my favorite Linux distributions. My answer is no. I'm sticking with SUSE Linux on both my desktops and servers. Here's why."

I'm not a system admin, but I would guess that they are more driven by how good a product is than by ideological purity. It's one thing post on OSNews, but it's quite another to move your company from one product to another.

Well put. I'm a sys admin for Novell products and I'm put off by Novell over this whole thing. However, I'm not about to run down to the server room and format all my NetWare and SLES boxes.

Actually, I'm still more steamed at Novell over the fact that they can't get a single management tool sorted out. iManager, Console1, Nwadmin. I need one tool with all the snapins, not five!
