"Recently, Novell made a statement that could've given them some
grief. In an online publication Computer Business Review

page containing the quote has since been pulled down.
"That aside, the real question will be whether or not Novell's
message of a 'more cost effective enterprise alternative' will be
reaching a big enough audience? Not only that, but is it entirely
accurate as a message anyway...?"
