SuSE, openSUSE A new major release of Novell's community-supported distro openSUSE 11 is now available and can be downloaded from the mirrors. Linux Format has a hands-on look at the new installer, SLAB menu and Compiz Fusion, and weighs up whether the distro can fight competition from Ubuntu and Fedora. Is this the start of a new era for SUSE?

Novell's contributions aren't limited to mono... They also contribute almost as much as redhat does to the linux kernel, not to much tons of other things, not sure how we can just simple do without Novell's contributions.

As far as the patent deal, I'm not sure that it was entirely for open source stuff. They have tons of proprietary products still.
