Microsoft get into bed with Novell!

Microsoft have had enough of watching consumers shift to Apple computers now that they can run both the Mac OS and Microsoft Windows, so in return they are going to allow users to run Windows/Vista and Novell's Suse Linux on the same PC.

Microsoft will of course control the virtualization technology that allows multiple OS's to run on a single computer, and in return they will support and sell Novell's offerings.

This is probably good for both companies - Microsoft gets to control open source and Novell gets a share price boost. And who knows Microsoft may even buy Novell one day, assuming the deal works.
