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.

This 'scaremarketing' by the Linux advocates simply exposes their fear of Microsoft than Microsoft fearing anything to do with the *NIX world.


Not that simple actually. I think there are those in Linux land that fear MS and vise versa. I don't think MS is stupid enough to not have a healthy fear (or respect if you will) of Linux. I think MS is certainly worried about Android.
