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."

read up on there financials , they havent been stale and done nothing as you wrongly suggest.

Their fixed costs are too high. End.

Another stupid Open Source comment , Microsoft and Apple are built on Open Source

Oh wow. I love these stories we get from other universes.

You truely dont know anything about R&D.Sometime you need to spend a couple billion up front in order to make more billions after

When are Novell going to start making billions? Divide their current revenue into the amount invested and give me a payback time.

you would be really surprised of learning the opposite.

Sadly for you, not happening.

Three years ? What are you on about ?

When did Novell buy into Linux twit?

I really like how some people mix religion with actual business information.

Learn to speak English.

Seriously. Lay off the keyboard and get a cat scan.
