US Government Department Look at SUSE Linux (Updated)

Posted in Africa, GNU/Linux, SLES/SLED, Windows at 11:34 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

The Dept. of Transportation has place a ban on Windows Vista while it looks at alternatives from Apple and from the Linux universe. Sadly, however, the Department seems to have its mind set on Novell’s Linux offering. The Fed. Aviation Administration and Dept. of Defense seem likely to follow suit.

In other news, Novell’s shares continue their decline.

Update (06/03/07): Have a look… “FAA May Ditch Microsoft’s Windows Vista And Office For Google And Linux Combo”

Novell: The Intellectual Property Payment Also Covers Novell Products

A noteworthy statement has come from yet another article (among several others), which describes Novell’s financial dependence on Microsoft.

Dragoon said that his company also rejects Microsoft’s claim and that the payment was intended to cover a variety of software products made by Novell, not just Linux.

Make a mental note. Novell says that the patents/infringements which it paid to cover are not necessarily Linux-related. One could therefore argue that Novell addressed the need to resolve collision in its proprietary products, not Linux.
