Novell: This Linux OS Vendor Went to Market

"Novell is a company that has run out of ideas.

"That's not to say it doesn't have some good software, or that there aren't some very good people working there. But the fact is that despite having SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) and much else to offer, Novell is a company going nowhere fast. Ask yourself this -- which of these two companies does it most resemble: Red Hat, the vigorous, thrusting fellow Linux server operating system vendor, or the crumbling Sun Microsystems, just before Oracle acquired it?

"That may be a loaded question, but you know the answer, and it sure as heck isn't Red Hat. There's a smell of death about Novell these days, along with a sense that this is a company that will never again attain the heights it reached in the past with NetWare. Like Sun before the Oracle acquisition, it's in terminal decline. You know it, I know it, and, it seems, the company's management know it too."
