""Our Microsoft partnership is clearly a very key and
strategic part of our Linux business not only in terms of new
customers but in terms of the innovation and work we do around
interoperability between Windows and Linux," Susan Heystee, general
manager for global strategic alliances at Novell, told
"Customers however, are still a key metric in measuring the
relative success of the Microsoft/Novell collaboration. Heystee
said that in just the past six months, the two companies have
signed more than 100 new customers, which is double the rate in the
first two years of their relationship."
