Novell and Ximian When Novell and Microsoft announced their unlikely partnership, a part of the arrangement that got little attention at the time was that they'd create a joint research facility, where both company's technical experts would collaborate on new joint software solutions. Now, they're staffing up.

What Linux really needs is open specifications for communicating with Exchange Server. I don't see Exchange interoperability listed in the agreement, and I'm really disappointed in Novell for not pushing for this.

When Microsoft went into this deal, the executives must have said, "offer them interoperability, use popular buzz-words like virtualization, throw them a bone on ODF support in MS Office (they won't use it if it's not the default), but DON'T let them in on our Exchange racket."
