Novell and Ximian "Novell on Mar. 1 announced preliminary financial results for its 2007 fiscal year first quarter, showing net revenue of USD 230 million. The first quarter's revenue represented a decline of USD 12 million, or about 5 percent, from the prior year's first quarter revenue of USD 242 million. Despite the unexceptional overall results during the first fiscal quarter 2007, however, Novell reported USD 15 million of revenue from Linux Platform Products, up 46 percent year-over-year, and USD 91 million of invoicing, up a whopping 659 percent year-over-year. Linux - make no doubt about it - is Novell's future."

Dear, oh dear, oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Having to breath life into your cash flow situation via a cash injection from a direct competitor. The total sum is even roughly equivalent to Novell's total cash flow. Unbelievable. I repeat again: Microsoft is Novell's competitor.

Yeah, Novell is finished!
From now on it's just a downhill ride.
You don't suckle from your competitors (in this case the devil's) tit, back-stabbing the whole Linux community in the process, and say everything is okeydokey.
