I think this could be good for both SuSE and OpenSuSE.
Having a owner that does not have a business related to Tech give's the company great freedom to attack all markets, with no restrictions or guide lines attached to other similar Tech oriented owner.
The disadvantage is that the new owner can have the temptation to turn a quick profit since SuSE is a Major player in the Linux world and Linux is taking over the World.
We have seen the example of RedHat being acquired by IBM ... well in that case RH was already a big part of IBM IT operations.
On the other side the EQT fund manager also have a longer term vision since they are mostly retirement and Sovereign funds investments ... those typically look further into the future growth revenues.
But none the less ... this is great a good news.
