Novell Open Workgroup Suite Component Change
Effective 1 October 2013, LibreOffice and SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop will no longer be available as supported products in the Novell Open Workgroup Suite. Novell Open Workgroup Suite customers with current maintenance will continue to receive support on these products until their current maintenance period expires. At that point, they may elect to purchase LibreOffice subscriptions directly from Collabora (an open source software consultancy now providing maintenance and support to SUSE’s LibreOffice customers) and/or purchase SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop subscriptions directly from SUSE.
Customers who buy or renew Novell Open Workgroup Suite maintenance before the effective change date will receive support for LibreOffice and SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop for the duration of their Novell Open Workgroup Suite maintenance period (including multi-year agreements). Any Novell Open Workgroup Suite purchases after this date will not include an entitlement to or support for these product components.
