Novell announced SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) 11 Service Pack 1 (SP1) in server and desktop versions. SLE 11 SP1 advances the server version's virtualization capabilities with full support for KVM, also boosting high availability clustering support, while the desktop version updates audio, Bluetooth, and multi-monitor support, Novell says....
Enterprise software giant Novell has put a date on the release of the first service pack for its SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (SLES).

If you recall, Novell's former best friend for SUSE Linux was Microsoft. Microsoft and Novell have a partnership where the two parties had certificates that indemnified SUSE users from any intellectual property liability.

On July 8, SUSE unveiled Service Pack 3 (SP3) of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11. The release adds a slew of new features to the open source OS, but are they enough to give it an edge in the enterprise-server software market?
July was a Microsoft-filled month, and that trend continued right up until the very end. Case in point? Hard on the heels of Redmond's little birthday present to Linux a few weeks ago, the Windows behemoth and SUSE announced last week that they are renewing the years-long patent deal originally signed by Novell but due to expire next year.
The SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 2 release notes state that SuSE offers "commercial support" for btrfs, while Ubuntu and Fedora appear to be holding back until a working fsck utility is available. Does SuSE have some special tools/people to support btrfs that other distros don't?

EARLIER TODAY we wrote about the expectation that VMB_ware will take over OpenSUSE, which is currently a Novell product/project.
