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.

Ok, so SP2 came out when? 2004.
SP3 came out in 2008, that meant Novell had 4 years to build a stable Client for Windows, and they couldn't do it. They had 3 years before that. They've had 3 years since and the Novell Client for XP still sucks.

Argue all you want, but they haven't changed it enough that it explains Novell's incompetence. once in 11 years (XP) is not a valid excuse.

Vista came out in 2006, and they haven't got it. Windows 7 came out 2 years ago, still haven't got it stable.

so that's 7 years for Xp to XP SP2, 3 years for SP3, 5 years for Vista and 2 for Win7.

Admit it, Novell sucks.
