"Is the Novell-Microsoft deal good for open source?" panel question

I’ll post a full overview of OSBC day two later, but the “Is the Novell-Microsoft deal good for open source?” panel went over time and I didn’t have a chance to ask the question I had. From the panel, Justin from Novell indicated that Microsoft was the number one channel for SLES in 2007 Q1. My question is: do you think having one of your major competitors (one who is much bigger than you no less, and has a track record with these things) be your number one channel is (1) sustainable (2) sane (3) almost an admission of failure in being able to effectively compete in the marketplace on your own.
