Novell’s SuSE Purchase in Perspective

We listened to the inevitable “We all love each other and everything is going to be wonderful” press conference, looked at readers’ reactions to the original Novell buys SuSE announcement, monitored and asked questions in assorted IRC channels, and talked to contacts at Novell, SuSE, Ximian, and elsewhere. But whatever we say (or anyone else says) this week, don’t expect the full effect of Novell’s SuSE purchase to be visible for at least two months; the purchase isn’t expected to become final until January, 2004.” Read the article at NewsForge, while check here for an analysis at ZDNews about it too. Update: See detailed comments from former-Ximianites Miguel de Icaza and Nat Friedman.
