What are your thoughts about the Mircrosoft Novell pact?
Good for us Linux users.

No, that can't be true. I won't touch SuSE/Novell any longer.

Read it yourself: http://news.google.ch/news?hl=en&ned=us&q=microsoft+novell&btnG=Search+News

That was quite a shocking message at first, but in my opinion it has just advantages for our Linux users. How handy is it if we can open .doc files for example in OO.o without any problems. Hopefully the support for novell will also go into other distributions.

I hope that there's not already a post about that, I searched for it.

What do you think? How do you feel, positive or negative?

I found six recent ones in OTW:
Microsoft supports Linux, Pact with Novell
Novell-Microsoft: What They Aren't Telling You
Strange bedfellows: Microsoft, Novell ink pact
Lol, people wanting to boycott suse.....
Microsoft backs Novell's Linux
Microsoft to Announce Linux Partnership

Some motivated moderator should probably go through them and merge/lock/dupe accordingly :)
