This is the "acid test" for open source and Linux in many ways. If Novell dicks this up, corporations are going to rethink future involvement and the risks involved in open source.

Bottom Line: If corporations like Novell can't make money with open source. The picnic is over.


You're being a bit overdramatic. It's not like there hasn't already been a ton of companies that make money off open source and have been for years. What happens to Novell has no bearing on anything or anyone other than Novell itself.
