More details about the Novell-Microsoft deal have been published by the SEC.
This news appeared today at German pro-linux.de: the SEC published details about the cooperation between Microsoft and Novell. The information are rated as confidential and therefore information like account numbers, financial details and so on are replaced by ***.
The documents are separated into three parts:
- the Patent Cooperation Agreement with details about the patent deal
- the Technical Collaboration Agreement with details about the technology aims and supports
- the Business Collaboration Agreement with marketing, sales and training plans
I’m not too much into this topic but it is nice to see that more information come up to the surface, whether you like the deal or not.
