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.

I hate this type of bullsh** that comes from people that have no idea whats going on in the most important post-Sun open source communities. OO.org was nether one of the most important ones from Sun perspective !

Glassfish, OpenJDK, Netbeans, MySQL, .etc. ... those are the most important projects from Sun. And Oracle is putting more resource in to then than Sun did !

Oracle just stopped investing in projects that don't interest then. And why shouldn't they ? Open Source is not about sponsoring geek's ...
