Novell's Chief Financial Officer Dana Russell said that SUSE Linux business finally broke even.

Russell said it's "a significant milestone," reported Channel Register's Timothy Prickett Morgan.

"For the quarter, Novell continued its trend of ever-shrinking overall sales as its legacy NetWare operating system and GroupWise collaboration software business declines faster than SUSE Linux support revenues can fill in the gap. Total revenues for the quarter came to $202.4m, down 5.8 per cent, with software license sales plummeting 25 per cent to $21.2m (largely because of NetWare declines)," Morgan reported.

In its hay day Novell dominated the file and print server market, now the Provo company doesn't even rank.
