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.

stestagg,

Do you disagree that many OSS supporters have in fact tried to have Novell and mono andMiguel excommunicated for dealing with the DEVIL (Microsoft). Is that not cult-like behavior?

Has not another cult leader (Mark Shuttleworth) attempted to poach openSUSE devlopers because Novell and SUSE are excommunicated.

I could go back and dig up hundreds of posts recommending such excommunication.

Do you disagree that thats what has happened?

Using words like "Devil", "Cult" and "excommunication" has no place in a rational debate over computing. One can disagree with the Microsoft/Novell deal on rational grounds.

These kind of ad hominem attacks only undermine what little is left of your own credibility. After all, how would you feel if someone described you as a "religious fanatic" from the "Church of Microsoft" conducting an "inquisition" into "FOSS heretics"? Because, honestly, that's what you're starting to sound like.

Drop the strawman arguments and the ad hominem attacks, and maybe your posts won't all end up hidden from the world...
