ZDNET: Suse Distro on Hold

ZDNet: Suse Distribution on Hold


Today’s GnomeCLICK is, in fact, a news story detailing the legal problems of one of the distributions we’ve covered in the Great Distro Review. A German attorney has successfully petitioned the courts to temporarily halt the distribution of Suse Linux. The plaintiff claims a copyright infringement by one of the applications included in Suse. It’s an interesting take on the open-source world, and instructive of some of its dangers.
