Novell and Ximian Two years ago, Microsoft and Novell inked a landmark deal on patents and Linux-to-Windows interoperability. According to Microsoft and Novell, it's a deal that has shown dramatic momentum in its second year, with a triple digit percentage increase in customers for a total tally of more than 200 customers. "I was surprised at the number of over 200 customers, so I actually went back and double checked it just to make sure," Susan Heystee, General Manager for Global Strategic Alliances at Novell told "That represents over 250 percent growth in terms of the number of customers that are part of the partnership which is really great. A real positive surprise has been the great customer momentum."

The last OpenSuse is far from being bloated at all, and all the community should look at it seriously.
It is polished, stable and succeed where Ubuntu still fails : stable set up tools, no need of the terminal.

That's why I would only recommend Suse to beginners.
And even if I am a power user, I appreciate to have a user-friendly linux as a desktop and focus on the real work.

Honnestly, there is really too much noise about the agreements, that anyway don't concern OpenSuse.
Stop the troll, turn the page.
