Linux package upgrades - how?

I currently run SuSE 9.0 Pro. I have heard that SuSE was bought out by Novell. I also heard that Novell is planning on releasing new versions of its software that will include some features that I want. Does anyone know how an upgrade would work? Would it likely be like installing new windows software on top of old windows software (i.e. the new software can import all of your old settings), or would I be likely to be starting over as far as re-installing all of my current software?

Just wondering...
