SuSE, openSUSE A new major release of Novell's community-supported distro openSUSE 11 is now available and can be downloaded from the mirrors. Linux Format has a hands-on look at the new installer, SLAB menu and Compiz Fusion, and weighs up whether the distro can fight competition from Ubuntu and Fedora. Is this the start of a new era for SUSE?

You're underestimating how conservative businesses can be.

We're I'm working they're still using .NET 2.0 and probably will for a good while.

The only thing they've found interesting about WPF is Silverlight, which they decided to not delve into until a couple of years.

You're partly right of course, but it's better than nothing, eh?

Believe me, I'm familiar with how conservative businesses are. The company I work for still has me coding in C++ using ATL/WTL and Win32. It's just slightly surprising for me to see that Winforms were deprecated before we even began to evaluate it seriously.

That of course makes us wonder how long WPF will be around for before it too gets deprecated.
