Dell Partners with MS/Novell for Linux Servers

untouchableForce writes "Yesterday Dell has announced that it will join forces with Microsoft and Novell to "make it easier for the windows operating system and then [...] Linux [operating] system to work together." This is not overly surprising given Dell's good relationship with Microsoft, and since they already sell SUSE Linux on some of their servers, but it is likely to put a stop to the OSS community's celebration of them distributing Ubuntu.

The debate over partnership between Microsoft and Novell has been drawn out since the deal was signed and for some this will add additional fuel to the fire but shouldn't the OSS community be reading this as an acceptance of Company's acknowledgement of Linux?"
