Microsoft, Novell See Profits in Partnership

Two years ago, Microsoft and Novell inked a landmark deal on patents and Linux-to-Windows interoperability. According to Microsoft and Novell, it’s a deal that has shown dramatic momentum in its second year, with a triple digit percentage increase in customers for a total tally of more than 200 customers. “I was surprised at the number of over 200 customers, so I actually went back and double checked it just to make sure,” Susan Heystee, General Manager for Global Strategic Alliances at Novell told InternetNews.com. “That represents over 250 percent growth in terms of the number of customers that are part of the partnership which is really great. A real positive surprise has been the great customer momentum.”
