Novell and Altiris???

Interseting story I came across on one of the forums for Altiris. Someone is speculating that Novell has extra money and is looking to purchase Altiris purely for its SVS product. I disagree, I think that Novell would be better off with XenSource as it is less expensive and seems to fit a lot better with the current linux play they have going on w/ SuSE and OpenSuse.
From what I can tell Novell has its own management system XenWorks, even if it is not as good as Altiris’ offering. Just an interesting thought on today’s rumor of the day 🙂
