One of the better analysis of the Novell offer by Elliott

Here is an analysis of where the takeover bid by Elliott Associates, L.P. is going. It is long, but seems to me pretty well thought out. It points our that this is a loss for both Microsoft and Red Hat. And a huge loss for Novell (employees and customers).

My customer has had us scrambling to convert from Red Hat to SuSE. This should prove interesting.

Yeah. I like Novell, and I'll be sad to see them go. Heck, a lot of my skill set is in their tech. But three years from now, it will be as worthwhile as being "Studebaker certified". I suppose today that should be "Hummer certified"; but you get the idea.

If you don't call it Novell SuSE, but instead call it Citrix Xen, then it is still OK. Red Hat and MS Windows run fine under Xen. SuSE too.
