If you need to be told what your values are
the implication is that you don't hold them right now.

Novell is a corporation, not a person.

"a desperate deal with Microsoft that cut SUSE’s appeal" was a deal that
made sense and was quite successful.

As to who buys whom and why? All this speculation is silly. Corporate
acquisitions are extremely complicated and made for equally complicated,
and often opaque [from the outside], reasons. Intellectual property
always plays a roll.
