Novell, of course, is the birth place of Mono, the open source implementation of Microsoft's .NET framework. Reports indicate Mono developers have been fired as part of the streamlining process, but according to Attachmate's CEO, they weren't fired because of Mono.

C++? You're joking, right? And Qt? Qt is in Nokia's hands, and Nokia is in Microsoft hands. I wish You good luck with Qt. ;)
