ABSTRACT
The article discusses the issue regarding the splitting up of Novell Inc. into two. It states that VMware Inc. has cozied up to SUSE Inc., with deals around bounding SUSE Linux AG with VSphere and building virtual appliances atop Novell's Linux platform. It notes that because of the VMware/SUSE matchup, virtualization, operating system and middleware layers in play are met with a certain amount of standardization, which is bolstered in places by solid open-source reference implementations.
