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.

I think they are called Attachmate and not attachment. Just wanted to point that out.

Damn it, ever since you pointed out the original poster's reading mistake, now I keep reading the company name as Attachment! Before then, I always read it correctly. Now I keep thinking for a couple seconds after reading the name, "wait, there's something wrong..." and then have to correct myself.

It is very similar though, don't know how or why pointing someone else's mistake caused endless mistakes the way I read it... I actually remember even misreading the original poster's "Attachment" as "Attachmate" before. Man, I must be all f***ed up now. LOL.
