Novell and Ximian In the wake of last week's ruling that Novell, and not SCO, controls the copyrights covering UNIX, Novell is reassuring Unix users that it has no plans to follow in SCO's footsteps. Given that the company is no longer in the business of selling UNIX, it has no reason to pursue any copyright claims.

Novell is one company that hasn't really acted that way in the past, but you are sure they'll do it in the future.

I suspect so, yes. They've not done anything to make me think that they will *not* take the short-sighted view, as most corps seem to do when things get tough. And my crystal ball shows things getting very tough, indeed, for Novell in the future.
