Sounds fishy to me too. The more I read (thank you for the links btw)
it sounds like Microsoft extending its reach, which will only benefit
them. I will wager that, in the not-to-distant-future, Novell is be
stabbed in the back in the same fashion Microsoft has done to everyone
else they've worked with.
It's too bad. I see no upside to this for any of us.. and just when
SLED was starting to impress me they've started sleeping with the enemy.
