Novell and Ximian We were well aware that Novell had put itself on the market, coyly winking at passers-by, displaying its... Assets. VMware was a contender, but things have played out entirely different: Novell has been bought by Attachmate Corp., with a Microsoft-led consortium buying unspecified intellectual property from Novell.

Big difference is that Linux is not written acording to MSFT specs like Mono. Mono is unlicensed reimplementation of Microsoft .NET. A clone of proprietary tech, and every Mono user expects that Microsoft is king of .NET and by extension, Mono. Most Mono devs are Microsoft fanboys anyways. So what Microsoft says about Mono is important.

Not so about GNU/Linux. They have no right to talk about GNU/Linux. Whenever they say something about it, they are full of crap.
