Can't say for definite either way but I was at the Linux World Expo in 
London last week helping out Wim Vandeputte with some OpenBSD stuff. 
www.kd85.com.  The SuSE/Novell stand was just next to me.

I did previously work for them at this show.  I didn't agree with the 
copyright on YaST but the software was mostly okay.  Sadly, I get the 
impression, from listening to people on the SuSE stand in London, 
that things are about to go badly wrong.  Mostly due to the fact that 
I can't find a salesman or technician who will speak a word of the 
truth to me.

I suppose that SuSE will live on but it won't be the organisation it 
once was :) Hence my interest in OpenBSD as well as Debian Linux.
