Microsoft and Novell: The Ultimate Love-Hate Relationship

Filed under
Microsoft
SUSE




.NOVELL

it's worrying that Novell becomes somewhat of a .NET company. It's about Linux and Microsoft controlling the upper layer (applications).

there Schesto's at it again...

C'mon Schestowitz, you don't have to pollute EVERY news item with a 'suse' or 'novell' tag in it with your stupid ideological rubbish.

re: there Scheto's at it again...

Schesto's not alone. There are many of us who refuse to use Novell/SUSE linux, or OpenSUSE Linux because of Novell/SUSE's pact with the devil.

I have no desire for a flame war, or desire to argue about the Novell/SUSE-Microsoft agreements, but I (and many others) hardly consider Schestowitz's postings as pollution or stupid ideological rubbish.

It's pollution, spam,

It's pollution, spam, slander, baseless accusations, a witchhunt and tinfoil-hatted paranoia, among other things.

What it is not is in any way related to the news item above.

More Mandriva Eulogies

  • Good-bye, Mandriva!
    I think that it is sad that the Mandriva star twinkles no more in the OS universe, but it is good that other distros can continue with its legacy: Mageia, OpenMandriva Lx and, up to a certain extent, PCLinuxOS.
  • Finally! It's the year of Linux on the desktop TITSUP
    Mandriva, a French purveyor of desktop Linux, is being wound up, after becoming totally incapable of supporting usual performance (TITSUP), financially at least. The liquidation notice suggests the company's 2013 was around €600,000 and that the company has between 10 and 19 staff.
  • Goodbye, Mandriva, Thank You for the Mandriva Linux OS
    It is with sadness in our hearts that we inform you today, May 27, about the termination of the French Mandriva company, which is currently in the process of being liquidated, according to a notice posted on the societe.com website.
  • A Linux company that spent 17 years competing with Windows is officially over
    It also had some success in Malaysia. But by 2012, the company was on the brink of bankruptcy, a situation that had happened several times since its early days, in 1998. It was saved for a few more years by Jean-Manuel Croset, who joined as COO in 2011 and soon after became CEO.
