Micro$oft and Novell

Sunday, November 26, 2006

I heard about this news from several podcasts and not everyone seems to agree on what this deal specifically means. Some say Novell was trying to weasel out and indemnify itself from possible lawsuits from M$, and if that's true they just violated the GPL. Others say, its simply a deal to increase marketing between both companies as M$ is planning on marketing its server products with vitualization capabilities. Bundling a Linux flavor together with that does make sense. But once lawsuits go out against Red Hat users, then we'll know for sure what this deal really represents. I say we as a community should withdraw support for Novell and still support Suse until everything becomes clearer. Damn, Novell should've kept its greedy hands off of Suse in the first place.
