Red Hat sounds off on Novell-Microsoft deal; More reactions November 4, 2006Posted by rjdohnert in Uncategorized.
Red Hat put up a FAQ outlining their position on the new deal. Saying that they would never consider striking a deal similar to the one Novell reached with Microsoft. They also said in one year they will be the last Linux vendor left standing. Others like Forbes.com and Linux-watch.com also have something to say about the deal. Some like the not-so-great-reporter-linux-zealot Steven Nichols thinks Microsoft is about to unleash the litigation hounds. Forbes thinks Novell has surrendered, with Red Hat thinking Linux has won and that Novell is a traitor. I will post my own thoughts on the deal later.
