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 people considering to drop Novell, are driving home a clear enough point. They don't like Microsoft from an ideological standpoint and they don't like anything that is peripherally connected with MS.

I personally suspect something abhorrent to happen regardless of Novell's intentions. This is to good an opportunity for MS to wield the FUD stick and actually have some real fear in the FUD. This could very well be the start of the cold patent war.

I won't be dropping Novell again though. I already dropped SuSE the moment Novell became their steward. Failing companies make bad long term prospects.
