Novell and Ximian "It was not the best of quarters for Linux vendor Novell. When Novell announced its financial results for its first fiscal quarter, which ended Jan. 31, 2006, it reported revenue of $274 million [EUR 227 million], compared to revenue of $290 million [EUR 241 million] for the first fiscal quarter 2005. This was a decline from the previous quarter in which Novell had reported $320 million [EUR 266 million] of revenue."

They should reduce the number of distros they have. Currently they have five: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, Novell Open Enterprise Server, Novell Linux Desktop, SUSE Linux and OpenSUSE. All they need is three: Open, Desktop and Enterprise.

Then they need to get HP and/or Dell to offer these preinstalled. That would make a significant difference.
