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.

I personally disagree with them, but we have a right to disagree with each other.

Damn, this one was on topic:) At the moment I read this, the famous "We agree that we disagree..." from MS answer to Novell popped in my brain and is there to stay for today:)
