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.

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

And why don't hire Microsoft the Mono-developer like de Icaza?
If a platformindependent OpenSource .NET is good for Microsoft, why then comes it from HelixCode/Ximian/Novell/Attachmate/SuSE and not from Microsoft itself?

Mono is OpenSource, so Microsoft can still support and improve it.
