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.

Lets hope attachment isn't stupid

Like everyone else the patent transfer scares me a little, the last thing the tech industry needs is more patent lawsuits. However we don't know what got transfered, it would be very foolish of attachment to transfers stuff that could be turned around and used against them in a couple years, so lets hope they aren't that stupid. Or didn't sign some sort of agreement that only gives them immunity and no one else, that would be just about as bad.
