Microsoft and Turbolinux, a Tokyo-based Linux distributor up with a patent cross licensing deal and agreement to work more closely together. At present, Windows and Turbolinux machines on a mixed network can't access a common authentication database, but their deal should change this, said Noriko Otake, a spokeswoman for Turbolinux in Tokyo.

Yet another distro took the deal for FUD.

I did not even know turbolinux was still around. Any pub is good pub I guess. No intentions of using is regardless.

Another distro to boycott. This goes against everything that GNU/Linux stands for. Say no to Novell/Suse, Linspire, and now TurboLinux!!
