    Well Roy has been caught lying many times before so I would love to see some data backing this to be convinced it isn't just a bid for sympathy.

    Considering I can't find anything about this DDOS attack on their site, or anywhere else I'd consider it fake.

    OP, got any links to back this up?

    Well, I personally think this is a good thing. BN has brought nothing but FUD to the Linux community. They blast Microsoft for using it, but they really bring it upon themselves by trying to flame every developer that works on an operating system that they dislike.

    Also, Schestowitz cites his own sources way too much.

    Poor Boycott Novell- I hope things will be okay and the site will be up again. Contrary to what some people think, the site has a lot of excellent FOSS/Linux news. I learn so much from it. And the posts are well-researched.
