SuSE - Microsoft (Part 2)

On the site of Novell more information is published about their SuSE partnership with Microsoft. You'll find the press releases, the webcasts, FAQ etc.

As I understand, the most important points of interest for creating this partnership, is due to "virtualization" and "patents".

I found the image on the right on this website - great image isn't it? Maybe some day it's for real!

It'll be interesting to look back in a few years time and see which of these 'collaborations' turned out to be successful...

Should we abandon SUSE?

After the recent fiasco generated by Novell getting into an agreement with Microsoft and the whole Open Source Community planning to fight Novell both in and outside the court, will it be sensible to shift over to another Linux distribution? There are other distributions that are as good or better that SUSE so which will be best one to migrate to?

I like SuSE very much!
I think the choice for a linux distribution depends on the primary choice of utilization:
- desktop
- database
- webserver
- fileserver
- ...

As desktop and even to install Oracle (unsupported) I like SUSE or Redhat.
But I think I'll go for the Oracle distro in the future as I do most database/Oracle related things, the only drawback is that I don't have the latest "fancy" things.
