I'm still confused as to what product offerings will be available in the

don't see it offered anymore. Can someone please clarify what the future
of the traditional SuSE Linux distribution will be?

I am sure someone can, but then it will be argued about, misdirected, the poster beaten, abused, and persuated to dunk his/her head in a vat of toxic waste before the list (using the L reply-to feature) will finallycome to an agreement right in time for Novell to decide (while at a very expensive bar in Boston) that the names should be changed once again.

I think that it will take more than just a name change - although it would definitely help - to keep SuSE's past glory going well into the future. The Novell management needs to pull its collective fingers out and stop fart-arsing around with the stable, professional distro that we all got to love. I have my serious doubts whether I will buy another copy of SuSE in the future.

In the latest TUX magazine there is a comparison of several Linux distros and SuSE does NOT come up on top. The top choice is Mandriva, and SuSE is beaten by other distros (Mepis comes in 2nd and Fedora as 3rd).
