Novell and Ximian "Someone just asked me whether, now that Novell's become buddies with Microsoft, I'll be turning away from Novell/SUSE as one of my favorite Linux distributions. My answer is no. I'm sticking with SUSE Linux on both my desktops and servers. Here's why."

The deal also enables Microsoft to wield the FUD (fear, uncertainty, doubt) of patent lawsuits against the other Linux companies.



I believe i read an artilce stating that this kind of deal that was made between micorsoft and novell violated the GPL. And if MS thinks about suing other linux distros. well, they would probably also get sued along with novell for violating the GPL
