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.

If they really laid-off 30 Mono devs in the US, I would be surprised not to see them re-appear as an independent company.

Miguel has stated going independent as a possibility in the past (cannot remember the link). There is a lot of commercial activity around Mono at this point (Unity, Codice, Second Life, MonoTouch, MonoDroid). I am sure that most Mono users would rather get their product from Miguel and his teach than some unknown group in Germany.
