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.

You are either a demagog or you have limited understanding capabilities. I agree with you that the core business is selling, but that has nothing to do with this discussion. Besides, your argument can easily be rebated by changing transfer to Linux with transfer to Vista.

Gee thanks, I feel special now.

but that has nothing to do with this discussion


People who fail to understand what the core business is are frequently the same people who flat out refuse to use anything but OSS (or non-OSS) software. They think their little corner of the company and their agenda is the single most important thing while it usually isn't.

Besides, your argument can easily be rebated by changing transfer to Linux with transfer to Vista.


Of course. Thinking non-OSS is the only way is equally stupid and unprofessional.
