Suse Linux Enterprise 11 – Lean, Mean and Green!

Filed under
SUSE

Novell announces development plans for the next generation of Suse Linux, promising mission-critical abilities in a power-friendly package.

Since purchasing Suse Linux from its German parent in 2004, Novell has engineered an amazing turn-around in its business model. Prior to 2004, the world expected this proprietary networking company to slowly evolve its flagship NetWare product and equally slowly disappear into the murk of Microsoft’s marketing might.

Since taking the red pill (if you were at BrainShare in 2000, you’d understand), Suse has subverted the swallower and eventually become the product; the avowed future of Novell. Not bad for a supposedly free product.

With last year’s alliance with Microsoft, one had the feeling that the red pill was slowly tinging purple (Sam Varghese [of this site] and Miguel de Icaza having an interesting spat via the blogs on the topic).

Now comes the future. With the announcement of Suse Version 11 Novell is making it very clear that, as far as they are concerned, the future of the enterprise is Linux.

It is early days and there is some old content on the site which is a bit out of date but I plan to make linux.about.com a great resource for everyone. Read more
