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.

Did that "linux philosophy" you mention contain the rule: You have to hate microsoft.

That is really an interpretation of all the fanboys (though I'm not so sure if they were all 16 years old). Novell is just a business like most other business, still they're a very open source friendly business and at least I respect that (like I respect red-hat, sun and sometimes IBM).

The fight for freedom and open-source has to be won by making a better software world by actively writing free software, not be fighting microsoft!
