SuSE Linux founder Hubert Mantel has announced that he is leaving his position at Novell. His resignation came in a mass mailing list. He said in a brief letter, sent to recipients in a SuSE mailing list that he no longer can work in the company, which acquired SuSE in 2004. He said: “Too late for me. I just decided to leave SuSE/Novell. This is no longer the company I founded 13 years ago.”

Hehe. He had to leave. They really shook things up in SuSE and they shook them so hard that Mantel fell down :(. Now SuSE won't remain the same without Mantel...
