Microsoft's Linux strategy

November 17, 2006 12:49 PM EST

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has claimed that Linux infringes on Microsoft's intellectual property. This follows news of the Microsoft/Novell alliance announced earlier this month, that will provide support for Novell's SUSE Linux running on Windows machines, and the promise that Microsoft will not sue SUSE users and developers for patent violations.

Will these developments result in IT turning away from Linux, or gravitating to the SUSE distributions? Or is Microsoft spreading FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt)? Post your comments below (you will be required to preview before posting).
