I'm sorry, I made it look worse than it really is by typing $40M/yr instead of $40M/5yr. But the money is still there and it's a recurring payment for a "royalty". Will the payment continue after the 5 years? For how long?
These are very simple questions that Novell needs to address but they keep evading them.
We already knew about the Microsoft cooperation with Xen, that is old news. If only $240M is hard cash that Novell will see from this deal, it was even cheaper than I imagined.
