Kudos to openSUSE 11.0

Kudos? Better read the EULA for so-called "open"SUSE: http://lwn.net/Articles/283566/

Pay special attention to the "GENERAL TERMS" section which includes such Microsoft-approved terms as required you to cease use of the software at the end of the Agreement and forbidding the publication of benchmarking results,

I'm very sad for all the work and effort that went into SUSE over the years; I can understand the reluctance of those who contributed so much to acknowledge that openSUSE and Novell are no longer worth supporting but the fact of the matter is openSUSE is not "open" and Novell is no friend to Open Source.
