SUSE Linux is an increasingly popular Linux distribution that competes head-on with Red Hat’s Linux versions. SUSE Linux’s fortunes have been on the rise following Novell’s acquisition of Germany’s SUSE Linux AG for $210 million. SUSE is looking for more growth in the U.S. marketplace, helped in part by IBM’s $50 million investment in Novell as part of the SUSE acquisition deal. On another positive note, after acquiring SUSE, Novell announced that SUSE’s famous YaST installation and configuration tool will become open source, licensed under the GNU General Public License. All these developments have generated a distinct “buzz” around SUSE Linux as the up-andcoming Linux distribution for everyone from home users to enterprise servers.
