Boycott Novell

http://www.boycottnovell.com/

“Only customers that use SUSE have paid properly for intellectual property from Microsoft,” he said. “We are willing to do a deal with Red Hat and other Linux distributors.” The deal with SUSE Linux “is not exclusive,” Ballmer added.

"And so it begins, the gauntlet is down - who draws the first MS lawsuit? Red Hat? Oracle? EDU-Nix? Let us all remember who it is that is complicit in this FUD campaign, Novell’s self-serving deal legitimizes Microsoft’s assault on Linux.

If successful, Microsoft will create a landscape in the Operating System market that consists of themselves and MS-approved ‘competitors’ which pay royalties to MS in perpetuity, all others are sued into oblivion.

Regardless of the technical wording of the deal, and whether it can be established that Novell is violating the letter of the GPL 2, they are certainly violating its spirit, Novell must not be supported."

DIE SUSE!!!

No, not really.

The threat here isn't the fact that they can be successfully sued. The threat is the threat of a law suit. Obviously, MS has billions of dollars at their disposal. Their lawyers can draw this out enough to make the competitor bankrupt if they want to.

The only infringements (if there truly is any) of copyrights is in the applications that are Linux. The kernal itself is not infringing anything. If anything is found to be 'infringing' Microsoft the infringing software can be taken out of the software packages in a heart beat, but Microsoft is a monster, and likes to threaten and steal shit from their competition, and even their partners. *cough* IBM *cough*... They will suck them dry then claim it as their own.

What this does for Novell is protect them from the threats that Microsoft can push upon them. It also puts them on the top for enterprise solutions, as together they will work on interoperability issues. Also this gives these enterprise customers comfort in knowing that their chosen server solution will be a non issue from a legal stand point. Novell issued an open letter to the Open Source community. Click here to read the open letter. This will also help them sell more product because MicroSoft and openSuSe will 'be inter operable' and MS can claim that Novell is the only one with rights to their software.

What's this do for Microsoft? Well, it's normal business for them. They get a shit load of money, and edge out other competitors such as Red Hat. There are some things MS claims that is being infringed by Novell's software. Ballmer (head of MS) couldn't even pin point where they infringed in the coding, sooo LOL. The fact is this deal makes these 'infringements' make them look more credible when they claim something that is unlikely happening. Saves a bit of face to be 'cooperating' with the open source community.

Basically, it's all business and politics. Of course open sourcer's are going to be up in arms that Novell is selling out. These are geeks that grew up hating MicroSoft and focus all on the bad aspects of the product. They work hard providing free software that every one can use and better upon, and it's all being challenged by some big monsters. So they are going to up play this. But, in reality we won't know what's going to happen till it happens. Concern is a good thing, hell I'm concerned having openSuSe on my Desktop. I am really liking this OS... but that's what is great about the Open Source community, if I have to dump my current one I have over a thousand other Operating systems I can choose from. I will just say 'fuck it' and move on to the next great open source free OS that I might decide to download.

It will be interesting seeing how this pans out, and I will definitely be following it.





Any one interested in some more insight can read this thread here at Linux Forums.

Re: Boycott Novell
