Linux ban for Novell? - The Boston Globe

Not good news for Novell... 

Free Software Foundation is reviewing Novell Inc.'s right to sell new versions of the Linux operating system after the open-source community criticized Novell for teaming with Microsoft Corp.

"The community of people wants to do anything they can to interfere with this deal and all deals like it. They have every reason to be deeply concerned that this is the beginning of a significant patent aggression by Microsoft," Eben Moglen, the foundation's general counsel, said yesterday.

The foundation controls intellectual property rights to key parts of the open-source Linux operating system.
