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.

While some people are fine with that, computer geeks shouldn’t be. We should want to get in there and tinker with it. Read more
