ABSTRACT
This article reports that Microsoft Corp. and Novell Inc. have teamed up to convert unsupported Linux users to supported SUSE® Linux Enterprise, particularly on the Chinese market. There is a growing demand in China for their business model solution, which establishes a bridge between open source and proprietary software, as well as provide interoperability and intellectual property (IP) peace of mind for organizations operating in mixed-source information technology (IT) environments. A number of companies, including Dairy Farm Company Ltd., have agreed to receive Microsoft certificates for support subscriptions for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell. Novell President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Ron Hovsepian said both companies are committed to furthering their alliance.
