Hello to all you Linux users. I have been reading the question and answers to this forum and have found them very interesting as I am going through the same questions as to what distro. to use.Today it was announced that Dell has agreed to buy Suse Enterprise and that there is a pact between Novell and Microsoft for Microsoft not to file a lawsuit over any of its technology that is blended with Sues Linux.
My question is this should I let this concern me in choosing any Novell distribution ? Any comments would be appreciated thanks.
Regards John Wilcox

i wouldent let it bother you atall,

for most newbies it makes lttle differance on the ethics of free softweare as long as it works,
open suse is a fairly easy to use distro that is quite powerfull.

if it works for you use it, if not try somthing elce
