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.

Next up for the scrap heap: RedHat.

You might be right about SuSE. But I don't see Red Hat going to the scrap heap anytime soon. They have too many customers, and too many business partners. Red Hat is pretty much the dominant unix OS in the the enterprise today.

I do see Red Hat as an attractive acquisition target though. Possibly either IBM or VMWare might be interested in buying them.
