Anaconda is the installer for Red Hat Linux and Fedora Core. It is written in Python and C, with a graphical frontend using PyGTK and a text frontend using python-newt. A kickstart file can be used to automatically configure the installation, allowing users to run it with minimal supervision.
Anacondas are lizard-eating pythons, and the SuSE logo is a lizard, hence the choice of naming.
