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.

I wonder how Microsoft will figure into this?

With SUSE Linux Enterprise in the hands of VMware, will the patent covenant (and tight collaboration) between SUSE Linux Enterprise developers and Microsoft survive part and parcel? Personally, I think SUSE Linux will be better off with VMware than it ever was with Novel.
