Should Google and Novell merge? Just a thought.


Stefan Tilkov said...

OK, I'll bite. Why would an innovative, market-leading, company, just about to do the most impressive IPO in this millenium yet, want to merge with a boring, old dinosaur that seems to have a history of failed attemts to re-invent itself?

Let's assume this is one or two years down the road, and this is the "new" Novell where the latest attempt (Suse, Ximian, a viable "Linux Desktop", etc.) has "succeeded" already.

If Google really is the IPO of the millenium, then assume that, on this future date, Google has the leverage to buy Novell.

Let your imagination take over from there.
