27 Apr 2010
Novell is the first Linux vendor to achieve 5,000 certified applications; double the number of Red Hat.
Novell today announced more than 5,000 software applications are fully certified on the latest versions of SUSE Linux Enterprise, with independent software vendors (ISVs) contributing an average of 150 new applications each month. Based on publicly available information, SUSE Linux Enterprise 9, 10 and 11 have the most certified software applications of any Linux distribution, now with twice as many certified applications as the latest versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the next closest distribution. As Linux has entered the mainstream, the breadth and depth of application support for SUSE Linux Enterprise makes it the logical choice for end-users who require flexibility and versatility to deploy a variety of applications and workloads on different hardware and across virtual and cloud infrastructures.
