SuSE, openSUSE The first major effect of Attachmate buying Novell (and thus, SUSE) has come into, uh, effect. Novell, of course, is the birth place of Mono, the open source implementation of Microsoft's .NET framework. Reports indicate Mono developers have been fired as part of the streamlining process, but according to Attachmate's CEO, they weren't fired because of Mono.

This is problematic both for Microsoft and for the Linux desktop.

Microsoft need multi OS support for .NET (as Anders is saying "Reach is King").

For Linux development it leaves C++ as the only real development environment, and that sucks.

Linux desktop RIP.
