Red Hat spins, SUSE plays it straight
Last week, Red Hat announced its intention to get into the big data business; this week SUSE is trying to woo new businesses in Australia and keep its existing partners in the loop.
There could not be a bigger contrast in the approach the two companies take.
Red Hat's presser was a webcast, with Ranga Rangachari, vice-president and general manager of the company's storage business unit, making a presentation. Funnily, the webcast wouldn't work on Firefox on my Debian GNU/Linux workstation. Nor on my laptop, which runs the same distro. It wouldn't work on Firefox, even on my Windows 8 test box. It only worked on Internet Explorer on that Windows 8 box. The times, they have indeed changed.
