Novell and Ximian We were well aware that Novell had put itself on the market, coyly winking at passers-by, displaying its... Assets. VMware was a contender, but things have played out entirely different: Novell has been bought by Attachmate Corp., with a Microsoft-led consortium buying unspecified intellectual property from Novell.

making money pays the wages. If you dont, your tech can be the best on the market, but you will fail.

Tech industry is littered with such companies, in just a few months we have lost Sun, Palm and now Novell. These were once THE market, let alone market leaders.
