    Novell to Open SuSE Pro a la Fedora

    Novell has announced that it will create OpenSuSE to encourage help from other developers, similar to what Red Hat did with Fedora Core. From what I've seen of SuSE 9.3, they need all the help they can get.

    RedHat had a good idea with Fedora after they pulled the rug out from everyone's feet in killing their desktop edition. What's the motivation behind OpenSuSE I wonder? Poor product quality?

    Speaking of Novell, has anyone read the eweek article on their SCO counter-suit? Read it here! It's a very interesting development.

    Cheers

    Considering how bad SuSE became after the Novell acquisition, I would say that is likely. They can then concentrate on their production work on the enterprise product (Novell Linux Desktop).

    I havent touched SuSE 9.3 yet -- is it really that bad? How is OpenSuSE? Is it usable or crap -- like most betas.

    Well seeing as SuSE bastardized GNOME in all their corporatedly developed releases I fail to see how OpenSuSE could do anything except improve the situtation.

    I installed Open SuSE. Its 9.3 Pro. So far it nicer than 9.2 or whatever. I have my wireless card setup but I am having problems connecting to my hotspot. It looks good. Still need to play with it more.
