Read this comment on the slashdot article about Oracle thinking of buying Novell.

You overreacted. KDE is still very much supported on SuSE. Why jump ship based on a rumour of what someone might possibly do when you can just as easily jump ship later if they ever actually do it. I am on OpenSuSE 10.0 now and the water is just fine.

Years ago I was worried that what I was doing did not have much of a future and was looking at retraining doing something else. In the end I decided to carry on with what I was already specialised in and cross that bridge (retraining) when I came to it. I am still working on the same platform 20 years later, still worried that it is going to run out at some point but have noticed that some of the alternatives I was looking at back then no longer exist.

Don’t panic.

Nice advice, really. Would fit right in with the list of things that you wish you were told when you were a kid.

    When is the wedding?
    It has been a while since I saw any of your posts on Chitpavan yahoo group and I wondered where you were. I came by your blog via Yatin’s blog.
