SuSE Linux eyes middleware service market

In a move that could help enterprises more easily expand their use of open source software beyond the Linux operating system,
SuSE Linux AG is proposing a new service program for middleware products based on open code.

"There are a lot of new open source products in the middleware market but it's difficult for enterprises to know who is doing what and, in particular,
how to obtain service," said SuSE Chief Executive Officer Richard Seibt, in an interview Tuesday at the LinuxWorld conference and exhibition here.
"The service that we're discussing with the middleware suppliers is for us to provide 'one-face-to-the-customer' support and maintenance for their
open-source products in addition to ours."
