    Phoronix: SUSE Marks Its New Independence Under EQT Ownership

    It was in July of last year that Swedish private equity firm EQT Partners acquired SUSE from Micro Focus. That deal is now closed and SUSE is marking its independence today while proclaiming to be the largest independent open-source company...

      SUSE becomes independent while Redhat is acquired by IBM.

          SUSE is already great! For the best rolling release KDE experience there is no better choice than Tumbleweed.

            That's openSUSE, but indeed, the rest is very true. SUSE is similar to RHEL, but makes it real. Especially the 'E' part. I was going to say something more "snarky" about the crimson cap....

              Hopefully this will go well. SUSE actually did well under Novell, the package system was improved and was turned into an actually usable distribution with online updates and a rolling release. So really SUSE is already great and was made great under previous owners.

              However, private equity firms have a horrible reputation. Being bought by one is in the USA is really not a good sign for a company. Look at whats happened to Payless Shoe Source, Sears, and Kraft-Heinz under this. They tend to squeeze companies to death, load them with debt, and then discard the carcass. Hopefully this will go better.

                SUSE allows disk cloning on UEFI while Debian does not.

                    Which will MS pick up -- SUSE or Canonical? With IBM picking up RH, the move to consolidate Enterprise/Cloud Linux providers appears to have begun. Or as Yoda would have put it: "Begun, the Cloud War has."

                    If MS were to pick up SUSE, they could become a major contributor to KDE with no one really objecting (MS has massive C++ experience and clearly "gets" Open Source under Satya Nadella's new leadership).

                    If on the other hand MS were to acquire Canonical, they'd be in direct competition with RH and thus IBM over who controls GNOME. With Canonical returning to GNOME and Xamarin in MS' fold, one could argue that de Icaza would have then come full circle.

                    "We shall see", as the Zen Master says.
