"Novell first partnered up with Microsoft to boost its
Linux business. Now, it appears Novell needs Microsoft to keep its
head above water. Still, Novell delivered more of a profit than the
analysts had expected, 7 cents per share instead of 6 cents per
share, and its open platform sales, aka Linux, totaled $35 million,
up 24 percent from a year ago.
"Moving ahead, Novell plans on reducing the prices of its
products and pushing out the next versions of its commercial Linux:
SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server) and SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise
Desktop) 11. To do this, according to sources at Novell, the
company does not plan on having any more layoffs."
