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.

Attachmate, who the f**k is that?

I never heard of Attachmate before in my life, but based on what I read on Wikipedia the CEO Jeff Hawn is a complete douche. He and some hired help shot 32 of his neighbor's bison that had wandered onto Hawn's ranch, and just left their carcasses to rot, apparently to send a message to the neighbor. He even turned himself in for it. Now that's the kind of guy I want running my company!
