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.

Acquisitions in Novell's state and in the current climate and laying off employees? WTF?

Acquisitions during a recession make a lot of sense, because the buy-out targets are very cheap.
I also doubt that Novell plans any large-scale takeovers.
