Surf 11 » Novell SuSE Linux to become OpenSuSE

Finding the best waves on the web.

Via Subzero blue Novell's SuSE linux product will become open source, and be called OpenSuse.

this seems like a great idea for companies because they get some R&D work done for free for them. But it's not easy to get a plan like this going. RedHat has been trying for over 2 years with Fedora, and it's not really going as they wish.
I think the reason why might be that open source developers actually perceive themselves as rebels against the corporate system. They wouldn't really back a project they feel is onesided and totally for the benefit of a certain company.
