Novell and Ximian It kind of slipped underneath our radar last Friday, but Novell has released its financial earnings figures for the fourth quarter. While the company still shows a loss of 16 million USD (compared to 18 million during the same quarter last year), individual divisions of the company are doing quite well, with only two of them showing losses. Total revenue was 243 million USD. Interestingly enough, the company's Linux business is doing very, very well.

I'm suing you for intellectual property theft. ;)

Seriously though, I agree with you. Theirs isn't an issue of engineering. It's really their business sense that doesn't seem to be working very efficiently.

Well that and their support. They have gone from award winning to just another outsourced operation. At $500 a clip, it's horrible to have to struggle to understand the support engineer due to language barriers. I've dumped our Novell support contract and instead rely on consultants.
