LXer: Microsoft: Novell is toast and the patent Juggernaut rolls on

Published at LXer:

I experienced a strong sense of deja vu and began to wonder if this was going to be a reprise of Sun’s sale to Oracle and the forking of OpenOffice, one of the crown jewels of GNU/Linux. The premise of this article, to paraphrase an American general, is that old software never dies, it just gets forked. The question therefore is: is OpenSUSE safe and what is Microsoft up to?
