Microsoft to announce partnership with Novell?

Posted by rexdixon on November 2, 2006

Maybe! I don’t know but Scobleizer seems to think that could be the ticket. He points outmicrosoft the Novell stock is way down, and mysteriously going up today (up +1.26 at this writing and climbing!)well – we all will know in a couple of hours. Reuters is reporting it as such, and once again here. I’ll probably find out later, as Technically Speaking I have a podcast to cut still today!

  1. […] Interoperability – Novell/Microsoft Collab Day 2 This has been a crazy few days around Microsoft. I have not slept much, nor have the folks on the deal team, in the product groups, on the PR team, at our PR agency, and in conversations with the Novell guys they are in pretty much the same condition. At this point I don’t time for my own analysis, I’ll blog more about that stuff later. I’d like to thank my PR agency Waggener Edstrom for compiling this. Here are some of the folks writing about this deal. I’ll blog more when I have had some sleep.  Before the media links. We have been updating the website and will continue to do so. The site had to wait for the ink to be dry on the deal before we could build it, so it is not much more than some text blocks today. I’ve got folks working on that, and we will continue to update it as more info becomes available and as things like the tech collab work starts to get off the ground.  OK – here are the links:    AFX Microsoft to partner with Linux rival Novell – report By: Staff Writer November  2, 2006 20:05 Pick-up: Lifestyle Extra Forbes   Ars Technica Strange bedfellows: Microsoft, Novell ink pact By Eric Bangeman November 2, 2006   The Associated Press Microsoft, Novell May Partner on Linux By Michael Liedke Nov. 2, 2006, Pick-up: CentreDaily,com Euro2day Houston Chronicle Ledger-Enquirer Monterey Herald Worcester Telegraph BusinessWeek Boston Globe KESQ KGO-TV   BetaNews WSJ: Microsoft and Novell to Announce Linux Partnership By Scott M.
