Novell and Ximian Novell's board of directors on Thursday named Ron Hovsepian CEO and president to replace Jack Messman, and ousted the company's chief financial officer. In a conference call on Thursday, company executives said the changes were made to accelerate the growth at Novell, which has had disappointing financial results, particularly in its Linux business.

"As for Novell not being able to compete with Redhat, I have to disagree. Novell *could* destroy Redhat if they would get their strategy together."

Novell "could" have destroyed Microsoft on the server front too. "IF", they would have had their strategy together. Nearly a decade later, they still have no strategy or clear pathway back to the market.

I don't believe anyone here is questioning the programming and software capabilities of Novell. What most seem to be saying is their marketing department is lost in the distant past.
