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 have Suse10 on my home and work machine for years, and am actually pretty unsatisfied for a quite a long time with it. Somewhat slow, has issues with sound card sometimes (losses sound out of the blue), Yast is sometimes pain in the ass. I was actually considering the switch to something else even before this deal. As I don't use Mono or Samba or OpenXML, I don't see a need to update to new Suse now, and pay MS royalities for it. I think I'm ready to try Kubuntu, lots of my friends are using it, and find it very nice to work with. So, kind of mixed decision.
