Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth is trying to entice OpenSUSE developers to join Ubuntu. "Novell's decision to go to great lengths to circumvent the patent framework clearly articulated in the GPL has sent shockwaves through the community. If you are an OpenSUSE developer who is concerned about the long term consequences of this pact, you may be interested in some of the events happening next week as part of the Ubuntu Open Week."

I just learned that Mark S. not only invited openSUSE developers from his blog post, but he actually mailed the opensuse list about it. This is very unnecessary.

It was tacky, but this is the same guy who announced he was going to make KDE a first-class citizen on *buntu immediately following the overblown Novell gnome/kde announcement.

Still waiting.

Read the following post from an Ubuntu developer/contributor: http://www.advogato.org/person/Burgundavia/diary.html?start=113

The reply from "Shark Muddleworth" is priceless. ;)

The Shark Muddleworth one was funny.

Here are some from the openSuse devs, including Andreas Jaeger, the lead developer:
