Novell announced more than 2,500 software applications are now certified on the latest versions of SUSE® Linux Enterprise, with an average of 140 new applications being added each month. Based on publicly available information, SUSE Linux Enterprise 9 and 10 have the most certified software applications when compared to the latest releases of all other commercial Linux* distributions.

To complement this breadth of support, SUSE Linux Enterprise is also a preferred Linux platform for many of the most important enterprise software vendors, including SAP AG, and is the fastest-growing Linux distribution according to research firm IDC. "With the rapid growth of Novell's ecosystem of ISVs and software applications, customers now have more reasons than ever to consider SUSE Linux Enterprise when they are choosing Linux platforms," said Roger Levy, senior vice president and general manager of Open Platform Solutions at Novell. "Our focus and attention to our ISVs has resulted in an increased ecosystem of prominent software vendors certified on our platform, resulting in an impressive array of mutually beneficial partnerships. Much of our growth is also attributed to our working together with ISV partners to identify and deliver the applications most in demand by our customers."
