Linux Patents, SUSE and Firefox

Thursday 10th November 2005

Category: News

First of all, we have the news of various companies investing in Linux patents, although how effective this will be remains to be seen. Keeping with Linux, there was some speculation that Novell was killing SUSE - you can make your own mind up about it! More recently, one of the founders of SUSE has left Novell, claiming: "This is not [any] longer the company I founded 13 years ago."

Finally, Firefox is now one year old. I'd like to think that it has done extremely well with market penetration in a relatively small time - hopefully, later versions will help continue the trend away from certain non-standard compliant browsers.
