Que the Novell bashing

I am willing to bet a fair chunk of money that not one SuSe/Novell article can go by without mentioning their deal with MS.

Seriously, it's old.

Thom, let's just ban Novell-SuSe/Xandros/Linspire articles altogether. After all, anything they now do is completely irrelevant now that they're in league with MS. Right, everybody?

Learn to read. I fully understand the nature of the deal, however most people bashing SuSe do not, and bring up the MS thing anyway.

And how is my opinion of it being old "wrong"? People on here are really getting brave with their rude comments. A little courtesy in your disagreement would go a long way.

give it some time for the ms deal to pan out

you never know this could be the deal that SAVED linux or the one that doomed it...

At this point, ie until it is actually put to the test in a courtroom, its impossible to make a judgment on it

I agree with that. It could very well be good for Linux, and especially good for people that actually use Linux for their jobs, instead of just out of love of OSS.

Then again it might not be. Only time will tell.

I don't understand this Novell bashing. The company spends lots of resources on improving linux, you can't deny all the SuSE/Ximian work on nearly all linux aspects (kernel, gcc, gnome, kde, ...).

Their bad and idiotic deal with MS hasn't hurt anyone so far so it's not fair to despise them like that IMO. You probably won't reject their actual work in form of open source code, won't you?
