The Microsoft/Novell deal rolls forward with this announcement
of the opening of a shared "interoperability lab". "Located in Cambridge, the 2,500-square-foot lab and workspace will be
home to a combined team of the best and brightest Microsoft and Novell
engineers focused on making Windows Server and SUSE Linux Enterprise work
better together. The first priority for the lab team will be to ensure
interoperability between Microsoft and Novell virtualization technologies.
Additional work will include standards-based systems management, identity
federation and compatibility of office document formats.
