Attachmate named Nils Brauckmann president of its new SUSE business unit -- and also affirmed its commitment to SUSE Linux, the OpenSUSE project, SUSE Studio, and SUSE Manager. Aside from shedding the Mono project, all SUSE projects will be continued, and there are no plans to change packing or pricing, says the company....
Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) recently became the world’s first $1 billion open source company. Now, the folks at SUSE, promoter of the rival Linux distribution, are seeking bragging rights of their own. Indeed, SUSE says it now has more than 9,200 certified third-party applications and supports over 13,500 hardware, storage and networking devices. Impressive.
I've been running a Suse 11.2 and ubuntu 9.04 on an internal HDD in separate partitions for about 6 months on an Acer aspire with 756 meg ram. I installed Suse first then Ubuntu as I couldn't work out how to alter the partitions and keep Ubuntu when installing Suse first.
I am running openSUSE 11.2. When i used to boot SUSE it would come up with the SUSE logo. After installing Ubuntu 9.10 and switching back to SUSE GRUB and made a link for Ub* on GRUB and now there is now logo. This doesn't matter, but i was just wondering why this was.
1. I have dual booted Suse and Win Xp in past. Can idea be applied to different versions of Suse? I have a working Suse11.2 , and I have a spare partition (15GB) which can be re-formated.
2. Can i do a clean new install to the spare partition? Thus ending with two working Suse versions? ( Separate /home partitions).
