Re: OpenSuse = Windows Vista for linux?
...okay, I've read it... This means that Novell SLES(D) will be the only OS allowed to legally (based off EULA) virtualize any MS sku. MS hates the idea that no real enterprise is willing to run their server products on bare iron anymore, namely using *nix as host and running a couple of Win2k3 server vm(s) inside. (That's the part that kills them). These are not informative and I'm not trying to sound like the 'boycott Novell' website either. This explains nothing! I still haven't found any reason for Novell to sign a patent co-op, isn't an NDA good enough? When all is said and done, Mono will only be able to be run on SuSE... Read the open letter to the community again. This sounds like if you run anything other than Novell w/ MS in a heterogeneous environment you will be sued. The part that I didn't see was it is stipulated (I'll have to find it, it's great) that these patent and working together follies ONLY cover SLES(D), NOT openSuSE.... By the by, why wouldn't Novell issue a statement like that about 'we don't agree w/ MS on the patent issue'? They're customers would already be indemnified anyways...
