Thanks to annual SEC report

On Friday
Novell partially disclosed three agreements it signed with Microsoft concerning their Linux deal last November. For some light Sunday reading here are the three documents at SEC, Business Collaboration Agreement, Technical Collaboration Agreement and Patent Cooperation Agreement.

The deal was perceived as a threat to open source software by the Linux community, and now it's up to the Linux people to study the documents and check if they violate the GPL. This comes on top of Redmond's claim that Linux violates 235 patents, of course, Novell is protected by the deal and is exempt form these accusations.
