Open Letter to Novell: Register your Protest

Bruce Perens has created an Open Letter to Novell in which he protests strongly the Linux company's actions in cozying up to Microsoft, who quite clearly still consider the FOSS operating system to be their nemesis. The title of this post contains a link to the petition. As you will see if you scroll down the page, FWIW I have added my own name to the list of engineers, CEO's and CTO's who are miffed with this deal.

I urge my readers to read the text of the open letter and, if you have any interest at all in the future of free and open source software, please consider signing the petition. The FOSS community will be grateful for your efforts.

Thankyou.
