Novell Laid Off 1000 People Last Night, Citrixsoft Also

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I rarely put criticism of Novell here, but anyway, this big round of layoffs
has a lesson to teach: those who make foolish patent deals with Microsoft lose
the community's trust and therefore suffer.

The news will probably appear on Monday.

Another Microsoft 'subsidiary', Citrix, has just laid off massively.

Citrix ejects 10 per cent of staff

That's just another Microsoft subsidiary (ish) laying people off.
