Novell and Ximian Novell is expected to initiate a major round of layoffs that could cut 1000 or more jobs in an attempt to restore the server software company's financial strength, according to employees familiar with the plan.

look at redhat... they simply have a better business model.

Red Hat business model: sell Red Hat stock high, buy back low.

Red Hat was lucky to make half a billion dollars on dot-com stupidity. Then, for very long time, they could afford to be not profitable. In fact, they could make more money in interest on their dot-com immoral profits (what is moral in stealing money from people?) than in software and services sales.

Novell was too late to the game. They have to survive on sales and services alone.
