Novell and Ximian Novell has been pretty much for sale for six months, and now The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Novell's Linux business may be bought by VMware. Novell's other assets, which includes Novell Netware, will then be bought by a private-equity backed software company called Attachmate Corp.

VMware is run by bunch of ex-Microsofties. Maritz is one of main characters in infamous Halloween documents and first thing he did when he become CEO of VMware was to un-GPL Spring TC server. Expect all kinds of crap if VMware gets SUSE.
