Microsoft The same week that Microsoft issued a press release providing further details about some of the technological advances that will result from the November 2006 technology agreement between Novell and Microsoft, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer told Wall Street what he really thinks the deal means to Microsoft. During a forecast update meeting for financial analysts and shareholders on February 15, Ballmer reiterated that, to him, the deal is more about Microsoft exerting intellectual property pressure on Novell than anything else.

Bill Gates and other executives at MS are well aware of this action by Ballmer. They are not personally making the statements, but if they were against this attack they would have intervened a while ago.

Maybe the OSS community should hold a fund raiser to really get behind Ubuntu and other projects that are replacing Windows installs.
