Microsoft renews alliance with Novell

Endgadget is reporting that Microsoft has agreed to pay another $100 Million dollars to Novell to keep Suse available on Hyper-V.  This relationship was one of the open questions after the purchase of Novell by Attachmate.  While there is little noise about Hyper-V in the Tech Media we are happy to see Microsoft continue to thaw it's attitude about Linux and Open Source.
