    The plan is to make moneys from all avenues. If the client is leaning towards Linux, they'll make residuals off the sale of Novell/Suse Linux. The client steers towards M$, they'll make moneys...

    Redhat would laugh in their face. Kind of strange they say they are interested in more deals like Novells when the agreement with Novell specifically states that MS cannot enter into a similar agreement with any other linux company!

    Sounds like even more hot air to me.

    That could bring an awful lot of money into Linux business and push it way farther.

    Does anyone know about the restrictions Microsoft 'offers' in return for the millions they provide?
