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 Enterprise products are top-notch, rock solid

If you have such opinion on VMware products, you are one lucky person. A lot of us had their share of crashes and lockups with ESX servers. Also, their choice of OS - ESX based on Linux, Virtual Center running on Windows - seems kind of thouthless and amateurish.
