SuSE, openSUSE Attachmate now owns Novell and therefore, by extension, also owns SUSE and openSUSE. With Oracle currently doing everything in its power to thoroughly destroy what's left of Sun's open source commitments, scepticism abound about the future of SUSE, and more specifically of openSUSE. Attachmate's CEO has answered some questions about the future of SUSE and openSUSE, and as far as words go, it's looking good.

I'd sure like to know why more of my AD policy doesn't actually take affect on the client nodes. The central AD policy provided a security template rule to not run removable media on insert yet there I was having to add a local GPO on each machine before they stopped auto-running removable media. I'm also still writing long login scripts to cover things that should simply be policy rules.. and heaven forbid I have WinXP and Win7 trying to run the same login script without presenting a nice big error to my user. I'm still having to manage Exchange separately from AD (changes in Exchange flowing into AD instead of changes in AD properly affecting Exchange).

I can't compare with Novell as the last time I worked with that was Netware prior to eDirectory becoming a separate product. I'd sure like to see MS-LDAP be a little more effective at what it claims to do though.
