SuSE, openSUSE The first major effect of Attachmate buying Novell (and thus, SUSE) has come into, uh, effect. Novell, of course, is the birth place of Mono, the open source implementation of Microsoft's .NET framework. Reports indicate Mono developers have been fired as part of the streamlining process, but according to Attachmate's CEO, they weren't fired because of Mono.

Not end of Mono development?

So, I've read this now on a couple news sites...

It sounds like only the U.S. Mono devs were let go?

That means they're not ending Mono, but they're moving the project out of the U.S. and will likely hire new resources elsewhere to work on it?

SUSE's going back to Nuremburg, perhaps they're moving the Mono development there
