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 www.microsoft.com/interop 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:
