"As Novell and Microsoft continue to grow their partnership into it third year of maturity they are also adding new tools to the mix. One of them is a new Novell support offer for Red Hat Enterprise Linux users that was announced last week.

"The new Red Hat offer includes up to two years of support for Red Hat while the customer migrates to a Novell Linux operating system. It's an offer that is also now being made available by way of the Microsoft partnership. Both Microsoft and Novell however denied that the new support offer would result in a shift in their sales strategy.

""In terms of helping customers migrate from Red Hat, it would be based on our existing sales model of pro-actively reaching out to enterprise customers and educating them on the offering," Microsoft's Sidhu said."
