Novell and Ximian The Free Software Foundation is reviewing Novell's right to sell new versions of Linux operating system software after the open-source community criticized Novell for teaming up with Microsoft. "The community of people wants to do anything they can to interfere with this deal and all deals like it. They have every reason to be deeply concerned that this is the beginning of a significant patent aggression by Microsoft," Eben Moglen, the Foundation's general counsel, said on Friday. Update: The FSF claims this is being hyped.

i back up the FSF, they are trying to protect linux from being ruin by nasty rich corporations like ms and novell. I will start my personal boycott of anything that is related to novell and ms, by not stopping at novell's booth at the So Cal linux expo show.
