I'd call you a Cassandra, but Cassandra was right in her predictions.

For the last 15 months, whenever Novell has come up on the list you have brought out the same half baked opinions without a shred of proof. So what if the primary ftp sites are in the US, the core development team is still in Germany.

I've had the opportunity to talk at length with the education director of Novell UK, nothing he has ever said too me makes me doubt Novell's commitment to Linux. There will be changes, some good and some not, but I do not see Novell making the mistake they did back in the mid-90's and handing MS yet another market.
