Novell to Buy SUSE Linux

NOVELL: Novell Announces Agreement to Acquire Leading Enterprise Linux Technology Company SUSE LINUX. (Via Slashdot.)

Ok, this is going to get interesting. Now Novell , which recently acquired one of the best MS Exchange-compatible desktops for linux (Ximian), adds one of the top business-oriented Linux distributions. SUSE is dominant in the European business market, sort of like Redhat is here (although I'm attracted to Mandrake for home use. as it supposedly has the most and easiest drivers). Roll it with Novell's network software and you have the makings of a super business package I might even be able to sell to the nobody-ever-got-fired-for-buying-Microsoft crowd here.

If only Novell had kept WordPerfect and could release an updated Linux version.
