SUSE Linux

Microsoft and Novell have reached agreement for allowing open-source Linux software to work with Windows. After years of trying to crush open-source rivals, Microsoft said it will provide support and technology to allow Linux to work on Windows. At the same time, it agreed not to assert patent claims against customers of Suse, Novell's Linux operating system.

In its second major partnership with an open-source software company this week, Microsoft sought to assure a growing number of Linux users, especially in the computer server market, that the two platforms can co-exist.

'We appreciate that open-source software plays an important role in our industry and it's here to stay,' said Brad Smith, Microsoft's general counsel. 'This will enable a new level of cooperation between open source and proprietary software.' (PC Pro News, 2006)

Looks decent, and much better layout than the AB9 series, what a screwup that board is.

I wonder why they used the 945 rather than the 965, price maybe?

Perhaps to get the legacy support that the board seems to have?

I should have read the news article better. :rolleyes: That said I would rather see people include a separate chip rather than use an older chipset.

Motherboards are infamous for their low margins and with consumers asking for more and more in the chips - intel charges more and more. Another chip would make this prohibitively expensive

I think that it will probably come into a different price bracket than the 965 chipset boards.
The enthusiast market is relatively small.
