You would need to qualify that slightly by saying the possibility, though
rare,
may depend on the source of the capital used for the purchase. There are those
with adverse motives of course... ( hypothetically MS funds the vmware
purchase
using vmware as the front-man, kills suse, then sues Novell and the wayward
users for infringement under the MS-Novell deal). Nah -- it would never
happen :p

It's all speculation. None of us has any firm information, and those
that do cannot talk about it (and I don't expect them to speak up
either).
