SuSE, openSUSE Attachmate now owns Novell and therefore, by extension, also owns SUSE and openSUSE. With Oracle currently doing everything in its power to thoroughly destroy what's left of Sun's open source commitments, scepticism abound about the future of SUSE, and more specifically of openSUSE. Attachmate's CEO has answered some questions about the future of SUSE and openSUSE, and as far as words go, it's looking good.

Lack of optimisation, because each ARM vendor makes his variant of the base design they licence from ARM. Texas Instruments opens well its OMAP variant, but nVidia is far slower and less open.

Add on that the fact there is a far larger variety of hardware on the ARM plaform (wifi and graphical chipsets, touchscreen, accelerometer, camera, and bootloader - chen it is not locked), and the net result is so much fragmentation and target hardware so small that we are largely dependent on the vendor to get enough code and data to adapt a functional linux.
