Yes, Nat has officially sold out... I'd wager Nat would acknowledge as much. Maybe not publicly but introspectively he knows it.
1) Nat asserted that technical Novell employees weren't consulted in the deal with M$.
2) Yet as a technical person employed by Novell, Nat is being _used_ by Novell to spin the hell out of this so-called "win for Linux" to the community he was once very ideologically aligned. Whereby exhausting the considerable amount of capital he had with the Linux community.
Obviously Nat/Novell thinks its worth it, which should make us all very afraid for what the future holds for Linux. Sure Linux will rise above the inevitable flood of M$ bullshit but its all very unfortunate that the enabler of said bullshit (currently) has such an instrumental role in developing Linux.
It all smacks of Novell, and Nat, being pennywise and pound foolish.
