Novell and Ximian Ron Hovsepian explains how his outfit aims to regain investors' confidence and turn the tide against Linux leader Red Hat. "Our core Linux business grew 20% quarter-over-quarter. Why? Our strategy is different than Red Hat's. They are approaching this as an edge server play, and it's an enterprise play."

As soon as canonical delivers a solution that out of the box works for my desktops, and servers, and has integrated management tools...

Then perhaps, they may be competing with Novell.

Ubuntu, while a fairly impressive distribution, is not an "Enterprise" distribution.

Novell has made it fairly clear they're pursuing the enterprise, both server and desktop, and aren't so much interested in the latest flavor-of-the-month linux distro.
