Submission + - Microsoft and Novell sign deal.

UNIMurph writes: ArsTechnica reports that Novell and Microsoft have come to friendly agreement in which MS helps with marketing and makes a promise of interoperability.

From the article:

At a press conference in San Francisco, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and Novell CEO Ronald Hovsepian announced a new partnership between Microsoft and Novell. The unprecedented deal will have Microsoft offering a degree of sales support for Novell's SUSE Linux while both companies work towards better interoperability between their respective operating systems. As part of the agreement, Microsoft also promises not to wield its patent portfolio against SUSE Linux.

Just want to see what Slashdot has to say about it.
