For SUSE, music drives home the open source message

For SUSE, music drives home the open source message YouTube

Germany-based Linux company SUSE Linux has no national conference scheduled this year, due to the fact that its financial year is changing.

But the company has not forgotten to put out one thing which has marked that conference since 2015 – a parody video, extolling the virtues of open source software.

SUSE, which will hold its next annual conference in April 2019, has published its I'm SUSE Now Hallelujah video, a parody of Faith by Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande.

As with all previous efforts, the Hallelujah video is professionally crafted. It focuses on the company's mascot – the chameleon.

The lyrics are, as always, directed towards geeks and nerds. They would not mean much to the average individual.

I'm SUSE Now Hallelujah follows a string of videos made by the company since 2015, when it released a parody of Bruno Mars' blockbuster hit Uptown Funk, titled Uptime Funk.

This was to mark the release of technology for live kernel patching.

In 2016, there was a parody of Justin Timberlake's Can't Stop the Feeling with the title Can't Stop the SUSE.

And last year, at its conference in Prague, SUSE released two videos – one to mark its 25th year titled 25 Years, a parody of 7 Years, and the second, titled Linus Said, was based on Momma Said.
