Novell isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Furthermore, SUSE would continue to live on even if Novell went down under. It has a wide community and a strong presence in the enterprise environment. Plenty of other companies would be more than interested in buying the operating system even if just to keep the duopoly with Red Hat. Excellent products come out with SUSE continuously and it would be hard to replace it's place as it has proven to be a very usable desktop aswell as a solid server.

I have lived in Chile for a better part of my life and know first hand how the Mapuche's are treated, they are the original natives of Chile and they are pretty much treated as second to third class citizens. I agree on the matter that Microsoft performs a service by translating their software to let other ethnicities embrace technologies, however, this was a joint operation between the ministry of education and Microsoft who never even consulted with the Mapuches treating them like little retard kids who do not know better. Their pride is hurt, and it has been hurt for quite a while and it does seem fair to get angry and just shout out; "I am right here! Talk to me! You want to help me? Fine, but at least be polite enough to ask" An example of what life for mapuche's are here; http://www.metamute.org/en/Benetton-In-Patagonia-U nited-colours-of-land-grab
