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.

"The Novell Client for Windows is one of the buggiest pieces of shit I have ever seen.


Yes, Microsoft has always made sure of that though various changes in the underlying GSSAPI interfaces, etc. Novell could certainly win an Anti-trust suite against them on the matter if they ever tried. Sadly, they never have tried and Attachmate probably won't try either.
"


I'm sure that in the 10 years XP has been supported, or the 5 years that Vista has been supported, or the 2 that Windows 7 has been supported, Novell might have been able, at some point to put out a workable client. They haven't been able to.

This argument is just excuses, and nothing more. The api hasn't changed between SPs, just major releases. Nice troll though.
