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.

Didn't know Apple had backed off of that. That's good to hear at least.

Apple's fear of apps not taking advantage of native features is a non-starter.


Unfortunately, Mono is also a non-starter if they can't keep up with Microsoft and release new versions in parallel, as well as guarantee compatibility with the Microsoft implementation of .NET.

I really hope that Microsoft does hire the Mono dev team. But I doubt it will happen.
