SLED10 Accused as Being Proprietary?

Filed under: General — rakeshvk @ 4:15 pm

Regarding the 50 SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 activations that I recently blogged, there was a subsequent slashdot thread in which several people have sneeringly commented that SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 proprietary. This chaffes me because Novell is part way through a cultural change that I think is nothing short of astounding. Because of open source, the company is becoming a foundary of invention again. We’re finally starting to be recognized again as a place that can really drive new software technology.So, if you have somehow ended up here having passed through the slashdot firebranding, I ask you to consider some details about SLED, SUSE, and Novell.  >>>>

  1. Sled10 is open source. Open and freely available code. No support unless you pay maybe, no updates unless you pay maybe. But that is not what proprietary is.
