ABSTRACT
The article comments on the alliance which was signed between arch-rivals Microsoft Corp. and Novell Inc. in 2006. The alliance would see Microsoft sell and support Linux systems. Some argued that it was a ploy by Microsoft to convert Linux users to Windows. Now two of the world's largest organizations, Wal-Mart and HSBC, have signed up to Linux. The alliance will mean compatibility between Longhorn, the next release of the Windows Server operating system and SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10.
