What About openSUSE?

Nov 24, 2010

Attachmate plans to operate Novell and SUSE as two separate business units. But what about openSUSE?

In a short statement, issued in conjunction with the announcement that Attachmate would be acquiring Novell for US$2.2 billion, Ron Hawn, chairman and CEO of Attachmate Corporation, expanded on openSUSE's future. In the statement, Hawn says that the openSUSE project is an important part of the SUSE business. "If this transaction closes, then after closing, Attachmate Corporation anticipates no change to the relationship between the SUSE business and the openSUSE project as a result of this transaction,” he says.

The full statement can be found on the Attachmate Website.
