Novell and Ximian "Novell on Mar. 1 announced preliminary financial results for its 2007 fiscal year first quarter, showing net revenue of USD 230 million. The first quarter's revenue represented a decline of USD 12 million, or about 5 percent, from the prior year's first quarter revenue of USD 242 million. Despite the unexceptional overall results during the first fiscal quarter 2007, however, Novell reported USD 15 million of revenue from Linux Platform Products, up 46 percent year-over-year, and USD 91 million of invoicing, up a whopping 659 percent year-over-year. Linux - make no doubt about it - is Novell's future."

Linux desktop market share

First off do not give up on the SLED desktop market it is a very nice slick professional looking OS that blows Vista off the planet!

NOW if SuSE is smart they will work out a deal having dual boot with Vista that would be an awesome achievement for Linux and the end user.
I myself have been an avid Red Hat user since 99 and currently using FC6 (nice by the way) but I want to load up Open SuSE and check it out in the future...

Linux is its own worst foe by starting a distro on the desktop and dumping it faster than a stray cat with kittens!
