I've always like Novell. It is feisty, creative, customers love it and it survived a Microsoft onslaught that would have killed a lesser group of people.
Now, Novell may turn into two Novells, as reports surface that the company may be split up and sold in two pieces, with the core SUSE Linux business going one way and everything else, like e-mail and LAN operating systems, another.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the second buyer may be VMware.
Both deals are expected to happen at the same time, though Novell has not confirmed any of this.
What are your thoughts on Novell's past, present and future? Send 'em my way at [email protected]
