Parent article: Novell's IRC session on the Microsoft deal
If Novell was really worried about patent issues, they should have asked Microsoft for a statement that would greately undermine their ability to sue ANYONE for patent violations relating to Linux. As things stand now, all promises that Microsoft have made are completely MEANINGLESS and they continue to engage in active sabre rattling about Linux being in volation of Microsoft IP. Novell has not furthered their own stated interest in this matter and really have only "thrown gasoline on the fire".
A license, or a license by some other name, is just an implicit admission that Microsoft has something meaningful to sue over.
