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.

There certainly is a place for them on my OSS desktop, and my server, if I so choose.

I'm not sure what this "Freedom Software" you keep talking about is, but by telling people what does and doesn't belong on their desktop, or in their distro, you are trying to restrict peoples freedom to choose. Doesn't sound like "Freedom Software" to me.

That's what OSS is about, choice.
