Novell and Ximian Novell has been pretty much for sale for six months, and now The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Novell's Linux business may be bought by VMware. Novell's other assets, which includes Novell Netware, will then be bought by a private-equity backed software company called Attachmate Corp.

VMware is better than Novell in every aspect. Red Hat vs. VMware is an interesting battle. ;)

VMware Enterprise products are top-notch, rock solid, innovative (and pricey). If VMware can put all their enterprise know-how into SuSE Linux... We have a new Linux champion.
