"In effect, this itself shows a weakness in Novell's sales
strategy - the company cannot, on its own, identify likely
GNU/Linux users. It cannot convince people to switch. Red Hat has
to do the hard work and then Novell tries to sneak its way in.
"Novell is offering a three-year subscription to SUSE Linux
Enterprise Server for users who switch - and two years of support
to assist in making the switch. Something like the deal I get from
my local baker - a loaf plus six buns for a little more than the
cost of the loaf. The difference is the buns are palatable.
"Wonderful strategy - assuming that there are lots of companies
lining up for what, in my opinion, is a waste of time."
