Novell and Ximian Rumors circulating that Novell is going to kill off its popular Linux desktop lines are completely false. [However,] Novell is making one large strategic change. The GNOME interface is going to become the default interface on both the SLES and Novell Linux Desktop line. KDE libraries will be supplied on both, but the bulk of Novell's interface moving forward will be on GNOME. "The entire KDE graphical interface and product family will continue to be supported and delivered on OpenSuSE."

- Novell was not making money on SUSE

SUSE is a profitable division of Novell. Just because Novell itself is starting to go down the tubes, doesn't mean SUSE isn't making money for Novell. That has more to do with Novell's spending habits and maintaining the dying Netware.

- Novell have invested a lot of effort in Mono

And Novell spent a lot of money on SUSE, close to $300 million, so your point is?
