It's great to see a big player really embracing free software like Novell has been, since acquiring SUSE and Ximian. I can only hope for more of the same in the future from them, and hopefully from others as well.

Well I agree with you! Its really good. But what else could have they done? I mean the Novell business model and technology was going down and actually doomed.. so!

But they are doing the right thing, more ore less. I hope they will continue like that, or better, and they do not rotten too much even if they have a huge sucess with their policy and business...

Mono is just onother of the good things they are bringing or helping to. It is really and interesting concept and technology.

So, up to the moment thumbs up to Mono, Ximian, SuSe and Novell!
