Hardly "slammed" his company, he should know that working for company like Novell something like that would happen.

Hate to say it but I hope Microsoft dont pull the carpet from under his feet, if Microsoft are being more open just who is pulling them strings. It's not so long ago they were threatening patents and IP infringements, I guess he has to just sit on the side line then really.
