Novell and Microsoft ?

I'm not quite sure what to make of this news/rumors:
The best would be to wait for the offical annoucements from Novell and Microsoft (webcast), but sounds a littlebit like sup with the devil ;-) . We will see.

Update: Annoucement "Joint letter to the Open Source Community"

Hmm, the patent thing I understand - Novell's marketing gimmik.

Network interoperability is also sensible - may be a way for MS to show the EU that competitive clients do work with windows server.

But, what is that "linux applications running ON Windows and the other way around" thing?
- Xen?
- Running open source (apache, gimp etc) binaries packaged by Novell for Windows? Gibberish.
