There's been a lot of talk lately about Novel and Micorsoft's new deal. Most of it has been bad. Novel has done a lot good things to the Free Software world and the result of all this has been that once I saw openSUSE 10.2 available for download I went and got a hold of the iso and installed it on my system!
