Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth is trying to entice OpenSUSE developers to join Ubuntu. "Novell's decision to go to great lengths to circumvent the patent framework clearly articulated in the GPL has sent shockwaves through the community. If you are an OpenSUSE developer who is concerned about the long term consequences of this pact, you may be interested in some of the events happening next week as part of the Ubuntu Open Week."

With free software, I can find conflicts and fix problems with all related software so that all software is fine.

That line is great in theory, but wouldn't really fly with an over worked admin dealing with 1000 workstations of all different hardware configurations and software requirements.

The ball game changes when you go outside of the scope of a few machines in your basement.
