In a conference call on Thursday, company executives said the changes were made to accelerate the growth at Novell, which has had disappointing financial results, particularly in its Linux business.

Microsoft with their Windows based products will have a hard time serving two kings, Linux and Windows, thus any move by them at supporting more than their Windows platform will always cost them a lot...

I don't have an easy solution to them, though. As Novell shows, it's hard either way.
