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.

Also, their choice of OS - ESX based on Linux, Virtual Center running on Windows - seems kind of thouthless and amateurish.

Indeed. It seems as though Suse would similarly be as rudderless under VMware as they are under Novell.
