I was at the Open Source Singapore Pacific-Asia Conference (OSSPAC) and had the privilege to share the Novell SUSE story at their keynote event yesterday (17th Feb 2009).

In the afternoon, while walking through the various vendor and partner exhibits, I came across these two fellas and just had to take a picture with them... peace from left to right: The Duke, MySQL Dolphin and me with SUSE Geeko in tow.

SUSE Linux Enterprise with JAVA and MySQL ... nice senyum

Oh, and here are a short snippet on the contents of my keynote:
  • The Novell SUSE history and how SUSE is gaining more than 5000 new customers for Novell in 2007 alone... and growing revenue at 38% from 2006 to 2007 and from 2007 to 2008. We are growing SUSE at a higher rate than the Linux market at 22% year on year
  • All these are possible with the strong support from Novell partner ecosystem and it includes our strategic relationships with IBM, Microsoft, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Intel and AMD
  • SUSE is important but not the only open source story at Novell. I picked Mono/Moonlight and SUSE Studio as some of the projects that Novell is investing in and hoping to yield fruits down the line
Have fun! peace
