Yeah. It's a funny thing. Microsoft obviously has more risk of a lawsuit from Novell than the other way around and that's why the cash went from Microsoft to Novell. If Novell was going to agree to not sue Microsoft in exchange for a huge pile of cash, it kinda makes sense that Microsoft would also agree not to sue Novell...
But the way it played out wasn't brilliant.
