Novell and Ximian Novell's board of directors on Thursday named Ron Hovsepian CEO and president to replace Jack Messman, and ousted the company's chief financial officer. In a conference call on Thursday, company executives said the changes were made to accelerate the growth at Novell, which has had disappointing financial results, particularly in its Linux business.

There's only one tiny flaw with that official stance Novell is taking. The revenue brought in by Linux is a tiny splash in a large ocean when compared with Novell's core Netware business. Netware is what's keeping Novell afloat. Novell are nowhere near being as much a Linux business as Red Hat is, and it is doubtful they'll ever catch up.

no, microsoft is keeping novell alive. or to be more precise the 70mio they sued out of ms.

i predict that novell will follow sgi.
