ZDNet UK has more information about the layoffs, which apparently aren't "total rubbish" as SuSE has claimed. SuSE says the layoffs will not affect is commitment to the U.S. market. "Jasmin Ul-Haque, commercial director for SuSE in the UK, says that
marketing and support for the US will now be operated from the
company's German head office. She says the layoffs are designed to
make SuSE's operations more efficient and key members of staff have
been retained to drive sales in the US."
