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.

Few decades ago when there was alot of computer systems and os'es microsoft started to pour ernomous amounts of money on apple and by so ensured that there was competition but not too much of it...

Microsoft will support Novel, and suse will become great OS, this will again kill all other linux variations who doesnt have multi-billion support and Microsoft can say to courts "See! We have competition...we're not a monopoly!"
