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.

Maybe he's got a family or a house that needs paying off... I wouldn't leave one job without having another first, neither would any sane person. When your out of school, and your voice has broken maybe your manage to get a girlfriend *laughs* , some kids and your see why people don't just quit jobs without having another lined up.
