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.

My OsNews info page is viewable from Google. I only get modded down. I think it's good press amongst my user base... this site is infested with people who love linux and mod anything anti-linux or not-linux down. Justice will come the day this site is mocked. Bunch of leftist zealots. What's wrong with capitalism?

You clearly display your ignorance by implying that anything anti-linux is against capitalism. MS is indeed capitalist, but monopoly capitalist, which bears such a resemblance to the centrally planned economies of Soviet Russia it is difficult to believe that such a thing could be called a product of free market capitalism. Open Source in it's copyleft variants (of which LINUX is counted) would be considered Cooperative capitalism...to imply a left wing bias on cooperative capitalism as opposed to monopoly capitalism is ridiculous
