OT: Linux Distrobutions?

I heard today that Novell had bought SuSE, which scratches that possibility as
far as I'm concerned. That's the outfit that seems to routinely acquire and
destroy going concerns. Remember WordPerfect? They also created Caldera, which
morphed into the current SCO. Everything they touch seems to go to worms.

I'm distressed over these developments. I had just decided to rev all my RedHat
machines, which is most of my machines, to 9.0 and sign up for the RedHat
Network service on all of them, which is no longer an option. Any other distro
is going to be a wrenching change compared to that.
