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.

CAD (damn, Autocad is just too good! Have been playing with Bricscad lately to see if I may stop dual-booting);

Yeah, CAD apps are a weak-link in the Linux chain. We've tried various ones (QCad, Cycas, Rhino, and another one I can't recall the name of) but haven't found one that works well for those trained on AutoCAD. Until we found ProgeCAD.

It runs via Wine, sure, but it runs exceedingly quick and stable on our Debian 5.0 boxes. It's AutoCAD compatible, and the interface is very similar to AutoCAD. Our AutoCAD-trained teachers love it.
