Ars Technica takes a quick, and humorous look at the Novel-Microsoft deal, with visual aids.  From their initial infatuation, when it looked like Windows and Linux were going to be swapping code with each other, to the eventual souring of the relationship.  It has now spiraled into a nasty domestic disturbance, with Linux's multiple personalities, SuSE, Red Hat and Ubuntu all making an appearance.

"Following the recent deal between Microsoft and Novell, prominent industry figures and numerous members of the open-source

community have expressed criticism and concerns. As the controversy has unfolded, the debate has become increasingly

antagonistic and confrontational. From dubious intellectual property claims to accusations of appeasement, corporate executives

have succeeded in obscuring the facts and reducing the entire debate into a cheap PR conflict."
