The world’s largest retailer, Walmart, is the latest customer to go public with their choice to select SUSE Linux over Red Hat as a result of the Microsoft-Novell agreement signed in late 2006.

“We have wanted information technology vendors to deliver true interoperability and IP assurance between multiple platforms for some time now, and we are pleased that Microsoft and Novell are committed to fulfilling that need,” said Nancy Stewart, senior vice president and chief technology officer of Wal-Mart. “Wal-Mart is known around the world for its innovative use of technology. Selecting Microsoft and Novell is another step in that strategy. The net result is a win for us and, more importantly, for our customers.”
