SuSE Users' Panic Unfounded

Filed under
SUSE

Rumors circulating that Novell is going to kill off its popular Linux desktop lines are completely false.

A Linux Today story, which asked the rhetorical question "Why has Novell management decided to discontinue their entire SuSE Linux branded desktop and workstation product line?" seems to have been the source of these stories.

Greg Mancusi-Ungaro, Novell Inc.'s director of marketing for Linux and open source, said, "Novell has a Linux desktop leadership position with NLD [Novell Linux Desktop] and SuSE 10, and we intend to keep the pedal down hard."

"The SuSE Linux teams are largely untouched," Mancusi-Ungaro added. "Novell is focusing more on areas that are strategic, and the desktop is definitely one of them."

The Devuan project continues its vision of providing a libre Debian fork without using the systemd init system, and the Release Candidate (RC) version brings the GNU/Linux distribution closer to a final release. The interesting fact is that this RC appears to be stable enough to be used for production work.
