SUSE spreads the open source message – through videos

By

German Linux company SUSE Linux is well known for its Linux and other open source solutions. It is also known for producing videos for geeks and debuting them at its annual SUSECon conference.

This year, in Prague, was no different. The company, which marked its 25th year on 2 September, came up with two videos, one to mark the occasion and the other all about Linux and open source.

Both videos are parodies of well-known songs: the video Linus Said is based on Momma Said, while 25 Years is a parody of 7 Years.

Both Momma Said and 7 Years are songs by the Danish soul-pop band Lukas Graham, the former produced in 2014 and the latter a year later.

The 25 Years video was made in the same style as the one it parodied — in black and white — and fitted the topic as it traced the history of a company that was born in 1992.

Some of the lyrics in both SUSE videos would be meaningless to the average person – but every word will ring a bell, sometimes a very poignant one, with geeks.

And that's the primary audience it targets.

In 2015, SUSE celebrated its announcement of live kernel patching technology by releasing a video titled Uptime Funk, based on Bruno Mars' blockbuster hit Uptown Funk.

And last year, the company released Can't Stop the SUSE, a parody of Justin Timberlake's Can't Stop the Feeling.

The company's love of music does not end there: it has its own band, which plays at all its national conferences.
