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.

Won't work this time, though. They can do the EEE on companies, such as Novell et al., but they can't do it on a movement. That's why it is important for Linux to remain something outside of any given corporation - otherwise MS can EEE it easily.
