Matt Asay recent posted a story about how Novell might be in the market to make an acquisition this year in the virtualization space. He lists XenSource and Altiris as possible targets.

If Novell wants to maximize the potential of their Microsoft alliance and bring about a scenario like Canonical founder, Mark Shuttleworth, outlined in a recent Red Herring interview...

Why XenSource? Because it's at the heart of Red Hat's pending RHEL 5 virtualization features.
