Novell and Ximian We were well aware that Novell had put itself on the market, coyly winking at passers-by, displaying its... Assets. VMware was a contender, but things have played out entirely different: Novell has been bought by Attachmate Corp., with a Microsoft-led consortium buying unspecified intellectual property from Novell.

Please no to MS having UNIX patents

Today will be one of the darkest days in computer history of Microsoft ended up with the patents for UNIX. I hope Attachmate owns those and will sell to just about anyone else other than MS, if they ever sell them.
