In order to solve these issues, Novell® and Microsoft have announced a partnership to bridge the worlds of proprietary and open source technology. Together, Novell and Microsoft are introducing new technology that improves interoperability between SUSE® Linux Enterprise and Windows, which will allow you to save money, gain flexibility and streamline your company operations. We are doing this in four areas: virtualization, systems management, directory integration and identity, and office document formats.
On November 2, 2006, Novell, Inc. and Microsoft Corporation announced a series of agreements to jointly build, market and support new solutions to improve interoperability (and make a few million dollars) and make Microsoft and Novell® products work better together. Novell and Microsoft are bridging the worlds of proprietary and open source technology, and we have built this bridge based on a foundation of mutual respect for intellectual property.

The idea is Google Earth and / or a Google Map for the body, where you could rotate and navigate the human body in 3d, zoom in, but instead of stopping on the surface, the zoom should continue through the skin, so that you could look on all the diffrent layers, organs etc, read news, and have an open api and import format that would let people add data and layers to it, just like Google earth.
