Re: If oracle bought up all of the open source companies

Foiled! Even before they started! SuSE is already owned by Novell.. :P

I suppose that the crux is in de term "Open". They can buy the company, but not the already released product. Every one (..student usually) who likes can branch and re-start independent development of the original pre-purchase product no matter how high the lawyers will jump :D

Cheers,
Tony
