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."

It's all because they didn't release NLD 10 yet. Thus RH has took advantage of that by futher selling more to big OEMs. Currently NOVELL (novl) market cap is @ 3.07 Billion; Redhat (rhat) is @ 5.18 Billion. If you observe both makers over time you will notice inverse relation between them, which translates to being competitive to each other.
