BMW, Siemens Sign Up for Microsoft's Linux Support Coupons

Microsoft is touting BMW and Siemens as the latest enterprises to sign up for the three-year priority support certificates for Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise Server it offers, which are designed to help them run Windows and SUSE Linux Enterprise systems seamlessly together.

But the timing of Microsoft's release of these two separate deals is interesting, as they seem to come despite the disagreement between the Free Software Foundation and the software maker over whether it is legally bound by the terms and conditions of GNU General Public License Version 3.0.

When asked how Microsoft's position that it will not provide support or updates for any code licensed under GPLv3 affects these contracts and the certificates issued, a Microsoft spokesperson told eWeek that there was no impact as the certificates were fully delivered by Novell and redeemed by customers "prior to the existence of the GPLv3 license."
