SUSE is planning to celebrate its 20th anniversary
with a yearlong campaign highlighting its history and its future. The longtime provider of enterprise Linux solutions will showcase major historical milestones and discuss plans for the future through a series of worldwide events that will include SUSECon 2012
, the premier event for SUSE customers, partners and enthusiasts. The company's roots go back to the fall of 1992. "We have a lot to celebrate in 2012," Nils Brauckmann, president and general manager of SUSE, said in a statement. "SUSE today is the recognized market leader in several important segments, and is well-positioned to take advantage of an ever-expanding market for commercial Linux and open-source technologies. We plan to recognize the people, the events and the technological developments that have helped bring us to where we are today." SUSE plans to roll out information and activities highlighting how the company has evolved from its early beginnings in the open-source industry to forging partnerships with some of the world's leading technology vendors to deliver innovation, investment protection and enterprise-quality software infrastructure to a generation of customers.
