Novell and Ximian "Someone just asked me whether, now that Novell's become buddies with Microsoft, I'll be turning away from Novell/SUSE as one of my favorite Linux distributions. My answer is no. I'm sticking with SUSE Linux on both my desktops and servers. Here's why."

Everyone has to remember, Ziff Davis is an advertising frontend for Microsoft. A simple search of google will show it to be true.

Then Google is wrong. Before throwing around accusations, please look at the author. Steven J-something-Nichols is a Linux zealot. Has been, always will be. Ziff Davis or not.

I'm not sure it's fair to label someone who praises SCO OpenServer (but not SCO in general), and has come out in favour of the MS/Novell deal a "Linux zealot". Unless of course you believe that anyone who advocates Linux (by which I mean "does something as innocuous as using it but never telling anyone about it") is a Linux zealot. In which case I would say you're just a troll.

??? This just makes me wonder how OSNews is desperate for articles. To link at something you consider zealotry articles? Or you just enjoy pushing obvious flamewar articles? Either way, it doesn't reflect good on OSNews.

Beside the point, SJN is often wrong, even "very, very wrong",... but "zealot"...? No, he's not. If you think he is, then I suggest you read his articles instead of looking at the pictures.
