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).

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

Calculate Linux Provides Consistency by Design

Calculate Linux has a rather interesting strategy for desktop environments. It is characterized by two flavors with the same look and feel.
