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."

Novell has a price advantage over RH in the high performance computing area, where RH's price model is really very bad. HP and others have realized this and that's a big reason why they are supporting Novell for HPC use.

Is that enough to drive Novell's revenues where it should be? Of course not, but it is still a good grip on the market.
