Sun bought out Novell, so now what happens to SUSE?

I was thinking of installing SUSE 9.1 Personal on a computer, but then I read
that Novell was bought out. So, now I think I may switch to Mandrake if this is the case...,1759...119TX1K0000594here is an arcticle about Unix, Linux Insiders Express Skepticism About Sun-Novell Buyout

The reason I want to know if SUSE will still be continued is because I don't want to install SUSE then have to change in 6 months because they stopped doing the personal iso, stopped making suse, or they made suse into a bad distro.

Do you have a good command of the english language? If so, RTFA!

Sun did NOT buy Novell. . . nor is going to.

They thought about it. . . that's all.

Read this. . .

And please, don't start threads with a title that is false information.
