Novell and Ximian "Novell on Mar. 1 announced preliminary financial results for its 2007 fiscal year first quarter, showing net revenue of USD 230 million. The first quarter's revenue represented a decline of USD 12 million, or about 5 percent, from the prior year's first quarter revenue of USD 242 million. Despite the unexceptional overall results during the first fiscal quarter 2007, however, Novell reported USD 15 million of revenue from Linux Platform Products, up 46 percent year-over-year, and USD 91 million of invoicing, up a whopping 659 percent year-over-year. Linux - make no doubt about it - is Novell's future."

Suse is a great distro, don't get me wrong. It's stable, lots of features and packages.

But man is this thing heavy. I just don't get it. And no, it's not Beagle. It's not Kerry. Neither one do I have running. Even when I leave my computer on for several days. I've seen Suse on other computers. It's just slow by comparison.

I don't get it, I've tried several distros and most feel much snappier with only small differences between them. I really really love YAST, but I can't take it anymore. Going from Suse to any other and you get that same WOW feeling that you get from moving to windows to linux. The weight is gone.

I'm really looking forward to Fedora 7, especially now that they have a KDE spin.
