Novell and Ximian "It was not the best of quarters for Linux vendor Novell. When Novell announced its financial results for its first fiscal quarter, which ended Jan. 31, 2006, it reported revenue of $274 million [EUR 227 million], compared to revenue of $290 million [EUR 241 million] for the first fiscal quarter 2005. This was a decline from the previous quarter in which Novell had reported $320 million [EUR 266 million] of revenue."

I get the feeling that everyone is judging Novell on the now. R&D investments take time to see anything positive come out of them.

Admit it, people are whining about mono, bla bla C#, complained how they are killing KDE. We at least they are doing something.

I like it how they are freshly ATTACKING desktop linux with these new frameworks/infrastructure (mono, Xgl) applications (ifolder, banshee, compiz, beagle).

Time will tell but i'd rather pur my money on a risk taker!

And who modded you up?

Damn right. The present was the future when Novell started investing in Linux three years ago. Keep talking about the future.

I like it how they are freshly ATTACKING desktop linux...

Christ. Novell are always freshly attacking desktop Linux.

Now you know why dot com booms happen.
