SUSE 參戰:SUSE 宣佈投入 RHEL clone

Hacker News 上看到「SUSE is forking RHEL (」這個,原文的確就是 SUSE 決定參戰,跳進去 clone RHEL:「SUSE Preserves Choice in Enterprise Linux by Forking RHEL with a $10+ Million Investment」。

第一段把重點講完了,手上自己有 SUSE Linux Enterprise 的 SUSE 決定要維護一套 RHEL clone:

Today SUSE, the company behind Rancher, NeuVector, and SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) and a global leader in enterprise open source solutions, announced it is forking publicly available Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and will develop and maintain a RHEL-compatible distribution available to all without restrictions. Over the next few years, SUSE plans to invest more than $10 million into this project.

然後 Hacker News 討論裡面看到這個資訊頗有趣:SUSE 的 CEO Dirk-Peter van Leeuwen 才來三個月,先前在 Red Hat 待了十八年:

> Dirk-Peter van Leeuwen, CEO of SUSE, said,

According to LinkedIn Dirk-Peter started at Suse 3 months ago as CEO and worked for Red Hat for 18 years and was a Senior VP at Red Hat.

I think this move of Suse could be a credible threat to IBM / Red Hat's RHEL.

LinkedIn 上的經歷,應該算是純業務出身... 這算是什麼操作?
