SUSE Said It Was Becoming Independent But Instead It Became Like an 'Asset' of SAP ('German Microsoft'), Which is Hostile Towards Free Software

Summary: It certainly 'feels' like SAP 'took over' SUSE and it has been 'long time coming'

A week ago the CEO of SUSE stepped down and there was a lot of media coverage about his successor, who had come from SAP, which is a Microsoft ally that was almost acquired by Microsoft at one point. The media, however, wasn't paying any attention to what happened to SUSE's official blog. Over the past couple of months it was almost 'hijacked' by SAP, as I pointed out repeatedly in social control media sites. I'd hate to use "tweets" as 'sources', but these mostly link to the originals from SUSE's own site. Here we go, in chronological order:
