after 7 years with SUSE and Novell I've chosen to change something in my life
- and decided to accept a new job and will lay down my duties in the openSUSE
project. I've been with the openSUSE project already prior to its launch in
August 2005 and experienced a number of highs and lows. Overall the project
has been shaping up nicely, we reached a lot of our goals and the just passed
openSUSE conference reflects this pretty well in my opinion.
Just to stop any rumours - I leave Novell because I found a new job in the
trade show management area close to Nuremberg. Trade show management is where
my expertise is and where I worked prior to coming to openSUSE. While I
enjoyed the work at openSUSE, organizing the openSUSE conference meant doing
what I really love and my new job will give me many more conferences and
shows to plan and organise. As I will leave Novell before the end of December
the project needs a new openSUSE chairman who should serve until the openSUSE
foundation is created.
Best wishes to the openSUSE project and the people behind it. I had a lot of
fun over the past 7 years, met numerous outstanding people and learned a lot
which will help me in my future life.
Just a short story: Sometimes when we have Linux-related discussions I
mention names of people working for openSUSE to my colleagues at work who
are all mainly familiar with the Fedora project (because RHEL and Fedora
are used in our company). There aren't many names that they recognize but
Michael Loeffler is one of them. I think that's telling, isn't it? Thanks
for your contributions over all the years and good luck with your new job!
