I love Novell. This company has been on the ropes more than Ali in Zaire. But like Muhammad, Novell clearly has the knock-out punch. Whereas Wang, DG and WordPerfect all died because they couldn't escape their legacy, Novell did. NT killed NetWare and Office killed WordPerfect (which Novell bought), but yet Novell not only survives, but prospers.
Don't believe me? Well, why else would a hedge fund offer a cool $2 billion (in cash) for Novell?
I've seen enough companies come and go, and I've covered Novell on and off for almost three decades. Novell's survival and success are something we should all admire.
