In the News One year after sealing their surprise alliance, Novell and Microsoft have announced an expansion of their technical collaboration to 'link together the existing Windows and Linux frameworks'. The firms will extend their existing collaboration to focus on virtualisation, standards-based management, directory and identity federation and document format compatibility. As part of this process, Microsoft said that both companies are 'now working closely' at the Microsoft and Novell Interoperability Lab in Massachusetts.

I hardly see Stallman, John Hall, and a slew of other Linux Industry standard members as 16yo Fanboys.

Sounds more like the stance taken by a company with a failing business model, much the same as with Linspire as a company. The minute they jump on board with MS, their CEO takes a dive out. Then a few months later turns around to endorse Ubuntu as his distribution of choice.
