Novell is improving its license for openSUSE to improve the community-development activities that come with it.
Software maker takes a big step forward by allowing (and encouraging) its first OpenSuse community-elected and -managed board, opening seats to non-Novell employees.
Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier will help share with Novell the thoughts and concerns of OpenSuse Linux users and programmers.
The latest version of Novell's free Linux product includes new graphics interface and virtualization options.
Novell's OpenSuse Build Service now can be used to test software for Red Hat Linux.
Novell has apparently figured out how to enable "mass customization" with a cool new tool for Suse Linux enabling users to create and test variants of Suse Linux Enterprise and OpenSuse.
The software giant is making generally available its Linux and Windows Server virtual machines, plus its Azure Virtual Network, both of which are key to making Azure competitive with Amazon Web Services.
Novell just showed that it's not dead yet with a good hire of Joe Brockmeier. But will his voice get lost in Novell's sea of conformity?
