      Despite the fact they're only about 45 km from where I'm sitting, I have absolutely no idea as to what the current status of the company is.
      Please note: <http://www.open-slx.de/en/?About>
      In 2009, open-slx was founded with the primary initial goal to further develop, maintain, produce and market the openSUSE Box, the successor to the SuSE Professional Box. Furthermore, open-slx established its own support to end-users, enabling them to use and install openSUSE like one would nowadays expect from a modern product.
