Submission + - Microsoft extending Linux patent deal to SUSE (

darthcamaro writes: No big surprise, but Microsoft has now officially extended their patent, interoperability and Linux resale deal to SUSE. This was the deal that Novell had originally signed and now with the Attachmate sale, Microsoft is bringing the deal back to SUSE.
The deal is now being extended until 2016 and Microsoft is set to invest another $100 million into SUSE Linux Enterprise Server certificates. This is on top of the $300 million plus they've already bought since 2006.
