Suse Linux has been sold to a private equity company EQT Partners for $2.5 Billion. This makes me uneasy for the future of Suse one of the oldest Linux companies as private equity companies have a dodgy record for the long term future of purchases. I don't think this will have much impact on the consumer Open Suse at least not in the medium future. It may even benefit Open Suse as the recent releases have not exactly been high quality.
