Good morning geekos,
This morning we all learned the news that the openSUSE projects main
sponsor, SUSE, currently owned by MicroFocus, intends to be acquired
by EQT Partners in Sweden.
Nils Brauckmann (CEO of SUSE) personally called me this morning to
assure me this news will have no negative impacts on openSUSE.
This will be the third acquisition of SUSE since the creation of
openSUSE, the second under the leadership of Nils and his team.
Just as happened in that case, SUSE will be making no changes in its
relationship between the company and the openSUSE Project.
SUSE remains committed to supporting the openSUSE community, who play
a key role in helping SUSEs success, which is expected to continue
under their new partnership with EQT.
If anyone has any questions, concerns, or feedback, please feel free
to discuss them on this list or email me directly.
Many thanks, and have a lot of fun!
