Novell, Concurrent Create Real-Time SUSE Linux Variant
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Commercial Linux distributor Novell and real-time operating system expert Concurrent Computer have been quietly working on a real-time variant of the SUSE Linux distribution. Appropriately enough, according to Novell sources, this will be called SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time 10 when it is announced on October 9, but everyone in the SUSE community will probably end up calling it SLERT 10.
