Novell Profit Gets Linux Lift

Couple of thoughts on this:
- Interesting that they were able to grow Linux revenue this strongly given the recent noise around Oracle entering the Linux market (although likely with a RedHat compliant distribution). I would have thought that the rumors that were flying would have slowed Novell's sales cycle.
- The growth rate, while impressive, is still on very small revenue numbers (rough math says the Linux Platform Products revenue a year ago would have been just over $9M)

Business software concern Novell reported on Tuesday its preliminary third-quarter profit increased more than fivefold, saying revenue from its Linux Platform Products category grew 30 percent year-over-year.
For the quarter, Novell reported revenue of $12 million from its Linux Platform Products group.
