[News] The Latest from an Isolated Novell

Hovsepian: Balancing on the Novell-MS Tightrope

| "I believe we have the better operating system. They believe
| they have the better operating system," Hovsepian added. That
| competition is not going to change. Nor, he stated, was
| Novell's commitment to Linux.
| "Everything we do is done with the desire that Linux will
| win in the marketplace."


He's full of ru**ish in his defensive assessments.

Babysitter Tapped For Novell-Microsoft Pact  

,----[ Quote ]
| Novell today said it has appointed Susan Heystee, vice president
| and general manager for global strategic partners, to nurture the
| business and technical cooperation efforts in the Novell-Microsoft
| agreement to make Linux and Windows products work better together.


When will Microsoft drop the Patent Hammer?

| I predict that we will start to see more IP/Linux related
| comments from Microsoft.  I also wouldn't be surprised to see
| more Novell-like agreements between Microsoft and other OSS-based
| businesses.  This will be the common theme for 2007 and 2008.
| The patent hammer will fall in the first quarter of 2009.  The
| weight of the hammer really doesn't matter.  It's all about the
| timing.  This will come at a time when many businesses will
| start ERP discussions on where to go from Win2k.  Again, the
| strength of Microsoft's claim really doesn't matter.  Their
| goal will be to either win in the courts or keep it tied up
| in the courts as long as possible.
