Microsoft Starts Handing Out SUSE Linux Subscriptions

In the seven weeks since Microsoft and Novell announced their controversial interoperability and patent protection agreement, Redmond has handed out some 16,000 subscription certificates for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.

Redmond is also trumpeting the fact that several of its existing enterprise customers -- such as Deutsche Bank AG, Credit Suisse and AIG Technologies -- are among the first to take advantage of these certificates and the interoperability between Windows Server and SUSE Linux.
