Novell and Ximian Retail giant Wal-Mart Stores is contracting with Microsoft and Novell - Microsoft's preferred Linux partner - to build out the company's Web operations, according to a Wal-Mart executive. On Tuesday, Microsoft and Novell are expected to announce that Wal-Mart is the latest customer to purchase both Microsoft software and support certificates for Novell's Suse Linux Enterprise Server.

I guess the deal is legit. If a company that does some pretty shady things to save a couple of bucks thinks it has to pay Microsoft to use Linux maybe we're in for some bad news. You'd think they did their homework on this...or at least paid some Mexicans to do their homework for them.
