Microsoft unwilling to comment on extension of SUSE deal

SUSE

Microsoft has refused to say openly whether it will be extending the patent-licensing deal that it signed with Novell back in 2006. At that time, SUSE Linux was a part of Novell.

Novell has since been acquired by the Attachmate Group which, in turn, was bought by the British mainframe company Micro Focus.

In July 2011, Microsoft announced that the agreement with SUSE would be extended until January 1, 2016.

iTWire asked Microsoft about the SUSE agreement after Red Hat and Microsoft announced a deal a few days back on cloud installations, wherein Microsoft said it would be making Red Hat the preferred enterprise Linux distribution for installing on its Azure cloud offering.

SUSE

The Microsoft-Novell deal — SUSE was then a part of Novell — was initially signed in 2006 and, after its initial five-year term, was renewed in July 2011 for a further five years until the end of 2015. It has hardly two months left to run.

There has been no word from either SUSE or Microsoft on what happens next. SUSE's leaders are currently in Amsterdam attending the company's annual national conference.

Reviews
SUSE

If you are a more advanced user, or you are interested in learning more in depth about Linux, then you might be a bit happier with Fedora. But that really is a gross simplification of their overall state, and with a small amount of effort either of these could be made just as suitable for any task as the other one.

So pick one, install it, and give it a try! Or do as I have, and install them both in a dual-boot configuration, and compare them for yourself to see which you like the best.

SUSE

SUSECon 2015 kicked off today in Amsterdam. One of the biggest highlights of the keynote was SUSE's entry into the platform as a service (PaaS) landscape: the company is joining the Cloud Foundry Foundation.

When asked about SUSE’s existing PaaS offering prior to joining the Cloud Foundry Foundation, Alan Clark, who is also chairman of the Board at the OpenStack Foundation, told me that "SUSE PaaS offering were available through our partners such as WSO2 and others. We still have those offerings from our partners. With the growth of Cloud Foundry, it’s an initiative we need to be part of because of partners such as SAP and IBM and others we felt we need to be part of that and be engaged in that initiative.”
