"Regardless, Levy's new position comes at a critical
time for Novell and its channel partners. Novell's SUSE Linux has
gained momentum over the past two years or so. But a bigger problem
still looms at the company: Novell-- and its business partners --
often fail to connect the dots between the company's various
products: Linux, identity management, security, etc. In fact, The
VAR Guy often views those businesses as completely separate silos.
That's not good for business."
