Novell Ditches UnitedLinux, Joins Eclipse

Linux Today: "In a Q&A at the end of a Novell press conference, Messman said that "there's no value to us to work in in the UnitedLinux space," now that SCO has opted out of Linux. Messman added, though, that there's no reason why Novell can't continue its partnerships with both Asia-based TurboLinux and Latin-America-based Conectiva, the two other founding members of the Linux industry association.

Somewhat ironically, however, Novell today joined another industry group: the IBM-spearheaded Eclipse Project. Novell will start using Eclipse company-wide as its crossplatform IDE, said Chris Stone, Novell vice chairman - Office of the CEO."

That's my boys :)
