Novell to Give Fifty SLED Activations to the Linux Community

Filed under
SUSE

Novell is giving away fifty–count ‘em! fifty!–one year activation codes of SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop to members of the open source community. Fifty activations at a list price of USD$50 means fifty squared. That’s almost a $2500 value.

Thanks to an insightful (as in, “Why didn’t we think of that?”) comment from alert reader Liquidat, we’re upping the ante, raising the stakes, and sweatening, make that sweetening, the pie for putting yourself on the Your Linux is Ready map.

Wow!

Wow, Novell, a company that reported $300 Million in revenue for their 2006 second quarter is giving away a whopping 50 licenses (valued at $50/ea x 50/qty = $2500). How ever will they afford to stay in business afterwards?

I wish I would get some press whenever I gave away 1/1200 of a percent of my quarterly income (and of course their actual cost is pretty much ZERO).

I'm pretty sure this falls into the BFD category.

Oh look, I just tossed a quarter into the town fountain - please send the photographers and press flunkies my way.

Man who lives under bridge hates goats!

Film at Eleven.
