A Non-Announcement Concerning Microsoft/Novell Interoperability

On Nov. 2 of last year, Microsoft and Novell announced a pretty important interoperability agreement. This week Microsoft offered up a completely non-important update. The 1,128-word press release was so bereft of new information it could have been written by a congressional intern.

I parsed it pretty carefully and the only news I could discern is the fact that the OpenXML to OpenDoc translator is now shipping, something Microsoft announced separately last week. The company also announced plans to announce an updated directory and identity roadmap in the second half of this year.
