Novell and Ximian Obviously, Linux vendors will not remain untouched by the economic downturn. Novell has already announced a number of lay offs, and the openSUSE Linux division has not been spared. openSUSE board members Pascal Blesser and Bryen Yunashko announced the lay offs.

come on they have made some very nice products based on their open source aquisitions. They are trying to slowly shift to linux as their revenue earner but its not an instant flick of the switch.

If novell suddenly stopped their groupwise and other suites then they would not be making the money to sustain their linux 'experiment'

I hope the company YOU work for doesnt simply drop its current product line and revenue streams and create a new one with incomplete compatibility.
