Microsoft and Novell are partners now, but the companies used to be fierce competitors in the office software space. We know how that war turned out: Word and Excel gradually squeezed WordPerfect and Quattro Pro out of the market, and Novell eventually got out of the office software business. Today, the Supreme Court rejected Microsoft's attempts to halt an antitrust lawsuit filed by Novell, ruling that the case can proceed to trial (Chief Justice John Roberts, a Microsoft shareholder, recused himself from the case).
