The Software and System Development Company
SuSE was originally an acronym for "Software und System Entwicklung" (Software and System Development), a German Unix consulting company founded in 1992. In 1994, it released S.u.S.E. Linux 1.0, which was based on Softlanding Linux System (SLS) and Slackware Linux. In German, SuSE is pronounced "zu-zah," but is often pronounced as "su-say" by English speakers.
