Corel LINUX lives on as Xandros Desktop (though whether they are profitable or not is a matter of debate).

Loki was a consumer-driven company, while Novell is largely business-oriented. And in the enterprise, Red Hat has shown that profitability can be a reality. (Eazel was a tiny startup, and a large proportion of startups fold within three years as a matter of course - OSS or otherwise.)
