SUSE Linux Enterprise has Been Selected by Renault

Filed under
SUSE

Microsoft and Novell announced that French carmaker Renault SA has joined the growing ranks of customers taking advantage of the two companies' cooperation to deliver greater interoperability between Microsoft Windows and SUSE Linux Enterprise.

Under the agreement, Microsoft will deliver to Renault more than 1,000 certificates for priority support subscriptions to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell, as Renault consolidates existing Linux distributions to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server with the goal of improving interoperability and taking better advantage of virtualization.

"Working with Microsoft to jointly build and support solutions to improve interoperability and deliver powerful new virtualization capabilities is paying great dividends for our customers," said Susan Heystee, vice president and general manager of global strategic alliances for Novell.

SUSE/Microsoft Vapourware

Companies that adopt Novell's SUSE are foolish. They get absolutely nothing in return receive nothing extra apart from 'tax' for mythical unsubstantiated patent claims.

Some of those OSes were fully proprietary. Others were versions of Unix although they often had proprietary branding and non-open components. Read more

GitHub: Now Supporting Open Source License Compliance

Ask any developer where to turn for access to the latest software code for open source projects, and you’ll likely be directed to GitHub—one of the largest providers of open source code online. While GitHub has always been a great site for developers to come together, network and share code, up until a few years ago, the website had a problem. Though it was easy for developers to share code, finding the right software license to go along with it was much harder. The majority of downloads on GitHub, therefore, were taking place without the critical software license component. Read more
