It's not easy to say that Novell will try to re-define 'Novell'. Business doesn't go such a way. But I think that by leaving SUSE, u r allowing Microsoft to become stronger, because u r leaving the OS that made Microsoft becomes afraid. After years of Work in SUSE to become a 'thing', now u r leaving it to another 'nothing'. How about if u join Mandriva community, and the community evolved until Mandriva Linux become a 'thing', then Microsoft did the same with Mandriva, will u leave it again??, if we do so, we will leave all great things and make them weak.

SUSE is not great with the its code or architecutre, SUSE is great with the community that created the great thing called SUSE.

I advice u not to leave it, and we shall wait until this storm goes away. and we will see what will happen between them.

and As james knott said, the deal shall force Microsoft to work under GPL, and this will not happen. Simply, Microsoft will not allow MS Word to be open source.

I have an opinion considering the deal between Microsoft and Novell. The

replace word microsoft with the word sco

because this deal
has not been made long time ago, I think Microsoft did this step when
she realized that Novel SUSE has became a strong competitor to her OS.
This of course means that SUSE because really strong, and will be more
strong in the future.

Maybe/maybe not some us remember the netware days, and the days when
wordperfect was the 'thing'. I imagine in five years time novell will
be wondering 'wow how did that happen' and Novell will be once again
trying to redefine 'Novell'.

You have your view I have mine.
