"Germany-based software firm SuSE is setting up base here and is carrying out market research for the scope of its alternative computing system -- Linux -- that threatens to end the monopoly of Microsoft's Windows operating system."

"SuSE's London-based commercial director Jasmin Ul-Haque said, "Linux was launched in 1991. SuSE was created in 1992. We're older than Red Hat (another popular Linux distribution, which has a large market in India). And recent IDC figures say ours is the leading Linux distribution in Europe."

"SuSE is keen to get a greater market share in India and is looking for partners across the country. "We have just started out here. SuSE believes Linux can play a vital role in just about any company. We are trying to target the educational market, from universities to schools," she told IANS."
