Summary:
Open source software heavyweight and Novell vice president Miguel de Icaza this week publicly slammed the Novell-Microsoft cross patent licensing deal. De Icaza, a co-founder of the open source Gnome desktop project, joined Novell in 2003 when the big-N bought his companyl, Ximian. ā€œIā€™m not happy about the fact that such an agreement was made, but [the decision] was above my pay grade; I think we should have stayed with the open-source community,ā€ de Icaza said.
