Interesting development regarding Novell. An investment group has offered to purchase Novell (an unsolicited offer) at $5.75 a share. I guess they have not had the kind of success they had hoped for by migrating most of their products to a Linux foundation. Many people in the open source community were not happy when they signed the patent protection deal with Microsoft a couple of years back. Novell does hire and contribute a lot of resources for the Gnome Desktop. Suse Linux is a well regarded distribution, and I’d hate to see them give up on Linux development.
