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.

"Paging Pamela Jones ... I repeat, paging Pamela Jones.
PJ pontificating on this deal: http://www.groklaw.net/article.php?story=20101122130625952 Her suggestion is that it might be about Wordperfect IP. "

PJ also identifies via a tweet from Miguel de Icaza that Mono goes to Attachmate.

This is an interesting outcome for the GNOME desktop given that a number of GNOME applications, such as FSpot, Banshee, Tomboy Notes, GNOME Do and Pinta, are Mono-based.

I can find no reference as to what happens to OpenSuSe.
