Wow. I get buried for a week and get transported into a parallel universe. Microsoft and Novell make an historic agreement. And while some folks in the open source community aren't happy, it seems most (including me) think this is a pretty good deal for building software in general... I mean, being able to just these three things:
  • "...Microsoft and Novell will jointly develop a compelling virtualization offering for Linux and Windows..."
- Right on!
  • "...make it easier for customers to federate Microsoft Active Directory with Novell eDirectory"
- This has been a pain...
  • "...will take steps to make translators available to improve interoperability between Open XML and OpenDocument formats"
Nice! Guys, in the words of the great philosopher and sage, Rodney King "Can't we all just get along?"... I think that this agreement moves all of us who build software one step closer to doing just that. Posted on Monday, November 13, 2006 4:39 PM Misc | Back to top
