Novell Plays in Oracle Validated Configuration Program


June 12, 2006 3:23 pm





Oracle launched a program today to support validated configurations of leading hardware and software stacks based on Linux. Novell is one of Oracle’s strategic partners in this program. Validated configurations are a way to take complexity out of the equation for customers by having leading hardware and software vendors test and publish optimal configurations for Linux based solutions. Novell has also been active in creating validated configurations with a similar program we launched last year. To those customers still wary about putting Linux into their data center, these types of programs, back by global companies like Oracle and Novell, provide a new, higher comfort level for introducing open source into their IT infrastructure.

    Mr. Lowry – I want to thank you once again for referring me to Novell Investor Relations for information on Novell’s recent decision to transfer Celerant to Novell insiders for what appears to be a below market price.

    Unfortunately Novell IR has not responded nore acknowledged my request that it provide shareholders with information on this transaction.

    Can you please assist me in getting your IR folks to reach out to shareholders and provide the requested information ?

    I can’t help but feel I may be getting the ol’ corporate runaround from you and your associates, and that Novell may not really want it’s owners to understand the Celerant deal. Am I wrong ?

    I would like to know exactly what NOVL has done to apparently spook so many investors. Is it an intentional push down of the price? Are there wrong things being done?

  3. The price is artificially high.
