The director of PR at Novell says that “customers drove” the need to continue with the farce that is the MS-Novell deal. My suggestion to both MS and Novell is to show who these customers are and exactly what it is that they needed. If there is indeed the “… IP peace of mind for organizations operating in mixed source environments”, please enumerate exactly what areas are in infrigement and what are not. Stop the lying and deception. Be honest and acknowledge that without the MS monies, Novell would have nothing to show about it’s Linux sales.
