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.

The rule is simple, kick all the Americans out and leave it to the Germans to recoup the true spirit of SuSe. Novell burned SuSe's credibility and added layers of wasteful marketing and management.

If you know anything about Novell, you'd realize how funny the wasteful marketing remark is. Despite having a marketing division, when was the last time anyone saw any Novell marketing? I remember some fish ad during the superbowl ten years ago, but since then....?
