Cloverleaf to Become openSUSE Add-on

Filed under
Linux
Software
SUSE

Not long ago the Fuduntu team announced the end of their popular Fedora-based distribution due to developmental issues and later decided to offer an openSUSE based one. But yesterday, Shawn W. Dunn announced that distro would never see the light of day.

In an announcement on the Cloverleaf Website Dunn said due to manpower shortages, the openSUSE-based distribution would not be possible. As an alternative, the guys will maintain an addon repository for their "kernel, Mesa, Wine, Netflix-desktop and/or Pipelight, KlyDE, and Consort, targeting openSUSE:12.3 and openSUSE:Factory. Our repositories on OBS are not going anywhere, and may be added to any installation of openSUSE:12.3 or openSUSE:Factory."

What is the value of an open source platform? Would someone ever pay for it outright? Indeed, how does someone use an open source platform? Let’s start with the oldest and most significant of open source platforms, Linux. For the longest time, Linux was dismissed as a non-viable data center technology for “enterprise-grade” or “business critical” operations because it had no support model, no applications that ran on it and no obvious way to make money from it. How, then, did Linux become the engine that fueled the growth of the world’s open source ecosystem, an ecosystem that could be valued in the trillions of dollars, when calculating the percentage of the world’s economy that relies on open source systems? Was it just a bunch of hippies sharing the software and singing about it, or were there clear business reasons paving the way to its eventual victory? Read more
