This article touches on the patent issues of the deal and raises some issues of concern and interest.
  • Is Novell violating the GPL?
  • What the hell happens in five years time when the deal is over
  • Is Microsoft still trying to spread FUD about Open Source, this time using patents
  • Can we expect the FSF to take Novell to court over the possible GPL issues
I am also intrested in the role of Xen in Mircosoft's plans -- more on that later
