Novell and Ximian Novell on Nov. 30 announced its latest NetWare upgrade operating system, the Linux-powered Novell Open Enterprise Server 2. OES, which will be based on Novell's SLES 10, is designed to be a drop-in replacement for Novell NetWare servers, and a direct competitor to Microsoft's Server 2003.

Business's make deals all the time. The issue is, it is with MS... If Novell had made an agreement exactly like this with Redhat it wouldnt be an issue.


Incorrect.

If Novell and RedHat developed a patent deal over GPL software and decided not to share that covenent with the larger community, they would be subject to the same terms imposed by the GPLv3.

Both companies would be forced not to ship GPLv3 software until they modified their patent deals.
