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."

I believe that business should confine themselves to ethical business practices, and since MS have no type of regulatory or governmental authority over anyone, spreading FUD like "if you don't use our approved version of Linux, we'll sue your asses" is not one. I may be more vocal on the subject when it comes to MS, but if I am it isn't because of any double-standard: it's because I feel I can do more to make sure they are eventually confined only to ethical business practices.

If you believe that the most important thing is money, then that's your business, but if you do, and I ever find out I've been dealing with your company in any way, I reserve the right to drop you like a hot potato.
