Things are getting interesting.

Ballmer said Microsoft was motivated to sign a deal with SUSE Linux
distributor Novell earlier this month because Linux "uses our
intellectual property" and Microsoft wanted to "get the appropriate
economic return for our shareholders from our innovation."

Novell responds with an open letter:

Seems like Microsoft has already started the FUD campaign over the
agreement.  I hope Novell and all my friends who work there can
recover from this.
