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."

Tis a tough life I live, having a laptop where I can do everything I want with minimum fuss - I really envy you and your inability to access software titles from the big names, being screwed into a corner and at the mercy of pimply face teenagers and whether they'll actually maintain their pet hobby.

Ummm, can you use your laptop without being connected to the internet and without calling Microsoft to confirm your WGA past the 30 days Vista requires to check that it's legit?
Yeah, I know that not many people need that functionality but I'd like to have the option to use my computer without having to be wired to the net or phone Microsoft and ask them for permission to use my own computer.
