Interview with Justin Steinman from Novell
Chuck Talk writes "OrangeCrate is pleased to announce an interview with Justin Steinman, Director of Marketing for Novell. Novell has announced a major deal with Microsoft in the last few weeks that has caused some in the community to question the validity of the deal announced, and has already been characterized by Microsoft as somehow verifying that Linux violates Microsoft's intellectual property. While I disagree with that statement from Steve Ballmer, I do understand that it is only fitting to offer Novell the chance to speak directly to the questions we all want addressed. Maybe that makes me different from those who see any such compromise with Microsoft as evil - even though I don't trust the company any more today than I did yesterday. They have a long way to go to prove that they aren't out to be as disruptive to the market as possible - and so far, they haven't proved it."
