From the Novell site:

you will see that openSUSE is a Novell product.
And if you follow any of the links, they point to the openSUSE wiki. It shows
up on the list of products but it is not a product anymore. We did this for
historic reasons.

Answer your question?
I fear you got confused ;)


Sorry, Andreas, no confusion on my part - or anybody else's part.

That is what the url shows. And it shows what it is meant to show.

I don't think there is anyone in the (ex) Novell organisation who does not have the brain power to ensure that what is displayed there to the world is incorrect. (The alternative becomes a truly mind-boggling speculation....)

This matter has been raised, from memory, many many months ago - but the "misleading" information, as suggested, has not been amended.

Nobody is interested in any "wiki". Most people don't even know what a "wiki" is.

People read what they search for and read what is stated on the (ex) Novell site.

What is shown in on the official (ex) Novell site is what people first see and is what they take to be the official statement from the company.


(PS. I'm glad that you are taking that paternity leave you mentioned shortly after your son was born :-) . Take care of him, your wife, and yourself. Just relax, and bear in mind what my father used to tell me, "I work to live and not live to work." Ciao.)

Attorney: Doctor, do you recall the time that you examined the body?
Witness: The autopsy started at 2030 hours.
Attorney: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
Witness: If not, he was by the time I finished.
