Using code from Novell akin to eating "The Apple"?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on November 19, 2006 07:19 AM
It seems to me, that with all of the FUD being sewn by the Novell/Microsoft 'collaboration', that at this point, most Open Source projects might want to ask themselves if they even want to be accepting code from Novell right now, especially code that provides compatibility with proprietary MS formats. Until we see where Ballmer might be going with Thursday's (11-16-06) comments, it certainly seems wise to view any of Novell's action with caution, at the very least.
