Enterprises that worry about running Windows and Linux together in a single datacentre better take a close look at news that Novell and Microsoft served up today.
Their chief executives Steve Ballmer (right) and Ron Hovespian (below) at a San Francisco press conference unveiled a cross license patent agreement, ensuring users and Linux developers that they won't face legal charges for using Novell's Suse Linux Enterprise Server and Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop software.
