Novell and Ximian The first fruit of the recently announced Novell/Microsoft interoperability agreement arrived on Dec. 4, with Novell's announcement that its version of the OpenOffice productivity suite will now support the Microsoft Office Open XML format. The release candidate of Novell's modified version of OpenOffice.org 2.02 is now available for Windows for free download by registered Novell users.

I agree. A very vocal portion of the community has devolved into launching the kind of FUD attacks MS is better known for. I'm not sure what to think about the Novell-MS deal. I see some positives and some negatives, but what is clear is that all these anti-Novell attacks are both pointless and mostly wrong.

I think Balmer made that quote about Linux patent infringement solely because of all the noise being made by certain people these days and he thought it would be a good way to further divide the competition.
