"The enterprise Linux space has suddenly got very interesting
following the news that a bunch of sharp-suited New Yorkers have
made an offer to buy SUSE Linux's parent company, Novell...
"So for anyone interested in buying an enterprise Linux
business, bids start at around $1 billion for SUSE, or more than
$4.5 billion -- and probably closer to $6 billion -- for Red Hat.
Put like that, SUSE looks inexpensive. In the clash of the Linuxes
there's little doubt that the majority believe Red Hat is the
better one -- but is it six times better, as the price differential
(which admittedly includes all the "extras") suggests?"
