While we know that Novell is looking to cash out, I thing this time it's not
going to be positive for Novell product line.

"Novell are expected to select a number of bidders as "finalists" and then
hold an auction amongst that group"


Doesn't really look good for what was once known as Novell, I would be
interested in reading the complete Wall Street Journal Article (with out
subscribing!) But parts seem to indicate that the majority of bidders will
most likely be private equity firms which would only be interested in
parting out Novell inturn selling the valuable parts and junking the rest.

Not much comments from Slash Dot commenter's either....
