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 would also point out that everything I said about why the Java number is BS also applies to why Ruby on Rails is under-represented. Because like Java, Ruby on Rails is typically configured to use an application server such as Mongrel that runs behinds an Apache instance. Once again, Apache proxies requests for dynamic content to the Mongrel server. Because of that, as with Java, it's impossible to tell that a site is running on Ruby on Rails.

This method of deployment is radically different than the method that PHP uses of embedding the PHP interpreter inside Apache.
