Administration, interoperability and integration, Microsoft, SUSE/Novell
I think it would be right to assume that the Microsoft-Novell partnership can only become even more controversial in the coming months than it was when first announced last November, simply due to the fact that there’s so much more we could and will learn about the partnership as time goes by.
Today’s revelation that Microsoft has hired Tom Hanrahan, former director of engineering at the Linux Foundation, to head the Interoperability Lab does little to dispel that belief. The Interoperability Lab is a jointly run operation for Microsoft and Novell designed to make Novell’s SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 run on Microsoft Virtual Server 2005.
For all the controversy, however, the partnership rumbles ever onwards.
