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.

In my opinion, Attachmate now should get rid of all patent-infested code, drop all compatibility with .NET, take different laguage - Go, Python or Scala or ... and create fully open sourced competitor for Java and .NET platforms. Also making it primary programming platform for Linux systems.
