SuSE sheds German jobs
50 to go
SuSE, the privately-held Linux distributor, is to shed 50 jobs in Germany, the company said in a press release yesterday. SuSE's US operation in Oakland, Ca. was scaled back to a skeleton staff in February as "30 to 35" jobs were lost.
The company's chief European rival MandrakeSoft announced plans to go public on the unregulated French stock exchange on Friday.
SuSE blamed the economic slowdown said the cuts would chiefly affect non-technical staff. ®
