Evergreen brings 11.1 back from the dead

Filed under
SUSE

In mid-October we wrote about openSUSE 11.1 being put out to pasture and the openSUSE team's decision to rapidly end-of-life the release. In the world of open source, what does "end of life" actually mean for users? As resident security expert Marcus Meissner stated in the original announcement:
