Novell Hints It Could Use IP To Bedevil Open Source Solaris November 28, 2004

Posted by rjdohnert in Software reviews.

This sucks. Its just what i said a couple of posts ago, i can see what Novell is going to use its patenst for. to stifle competition. I think its a true shame. What I personally think is this, since Novell has found a new Open Source philosophy they shouldnt be scared of an OpenSolaris. If Novell tries this, that will mean they are no better than SCO and how can the Open Source community then be so enamored to the idea that Novell will actually use their patents to protect them, as Novell has claimed, and not use the patents as a battle weapon should someone create a better version of a software package then they do. I very much dislike novell, they abandoned the Netware users and this news just reminds me why i dislike them.
