Just over a year later however, and it appears that Hubert Mantel, who founded SUSE in 1992 with Thomas Fehr, Roland Dryoff, and Burchard Steinbild, is back at the Waltham, Massachusetts-based Linux and identity management vendor.

According to an article with Italian magazine DMO, Mantel returned to Novell at the start of the December, having taken some time off and deciding that he still wanted to work in Linux and with the SUSE business.

In the interview Mantel also voiced his support for the recent deal between Novell and Microsoft Corp, maintaining that it was good for the customer and also for Linux as a whole.
