I think it's funny that SLES performs at a comparable rate on it's own. SLES 10 got off to a bad start but has over the past little while become a viable competitor to RHES. I want to see more comparisons like this. I'd like to see the OES 2 platform compared to RHES's collection of similar products. (i.e. clustering, printing, management, virtualization, etc.) Also I'd like to see what Red Hat is doing to make integration easier when running a mixed environment with say Microsoft.
I don't think crush is the right word as far as Novell profit's are concerned. 33% in linux sales is huge milestone and foreshadows what's coming as far as linux servers AND desktops are concerned. SLES and SLED are solid OS's regardless of what Red Hat fans will tell you. And we're a Novell shop too, so I guess I'm being a little biased here. However, when your enterprise runs smooth you have to thank your underlying operating systems and software that handle your workload. Mainly SLES 10 with OES 2 SP 1. And I like the small increase in Identity Management solutions. We use Novell's Identity Manager Vault and I know a few other enterprises who can do all sorts of crazy things with it compared to other identity management products.
