Novell and Ximian Jeremy Allison (of Samba fame) has resigned from Novell in protest over the Microsoft-Novell patent agreement, which he calls 'a mistake' which will be 'damaging to Novell's success in the future'. His main issue with the deal, though, is "that even if it does not violate the letter of the licence, it violates the intent of the GPL licence the Samba code is released under, which is to treat all recipients of the code equally." He leaves the company at the end of this month.

Most people at his level have at least five offers on the table at any given point of time so even if he'd just grabbed his hat and gave the traditional two word exit interview it's doubtful he would have gone half an hour without any prospects. Tech is hot again here.
