AMD Strengthens ties with Novell

  • Linuxblogger by larrydag; By larrydag (Posted by larrydag on Dec 5, 2005 8:28 PM EDT)
  • Groups: Novell
Bruce Lowry of Novell Open PR says that AMD is moving up to become a platinum partner with Novell in the technology program. Platinum partner is the highest level of company relations with Novell. This continues an already strong relationship that the SuSE development team has with AMD engineers. A full time AMD engineer is moving on site to Novell. This of course is going to help Novell's enterprise server market. This is definitely better news from Novell than what we have been hearing lately. Novell definitely needs to show some positive PR of late. If there were any doubts about SuSE's future I believe Novell has only the best of intentions and great promise.

IBM to support OpenDocument in 2006 - On Web Based Shared Applications

IBM plans to implement web based applications using Open Data Formats (ODF) where users share the application and data by passing the desktop entirely. Apparently this is aimed primarily at rising economies of India and China where " ... They don't have the legacy of having everything saved in Microsoft Office to transition from...This is an opportunity to start out right." If true there is another very interesting aspect to this article: the claim that Microsoft's Open XML format is to be submitted to both " ... standards bodies ECMA International and ISO." The latter was not mentioned previously in what I have read and would be a much harder environment for Microsoft to sell its version of "openness". (Found on slashdot.)
