Novell Receives Additional NASDAQ Notice

Filed under
SUSE

Novell today announced that, as expected, it received an additional notice of non-compliance from the staff of the NASDAQ Stock Market due to the delay in filing its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended Jan. 31, 2007, as required by NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(14).

As previously announced, Novell received notices of non-compliance from NASDAQ on Sept. 14, 2006 and Jan. 22, 2007 due to the delay in filing its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended July 31, 2006 and its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended Oct. 31, 2006, respectively. Novell has delayed the filing of its periodic reports pending the completion of the review by its Audit Committee of the Company's historical stock-based compensation practices.

In response to the first notice of non-compliance, Novell requested a hearing before a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel"). On Jan. 9, 2007, the Panel granted Novell's request for continued listing subject to the requirements that Novell 1) provide the Panel with certain information relating to the Audit Committee's review on or about March 1, 2007, which was submitted to the Panel, and 2) become current in its delinquent reports and file any necessary restatements by March 13, 2007.

In connection with the call for review, the Listing Council has provided Novell with the opportunity to make an additional submission for the Listing Council's consideration by May 4, 2007.

Justin Steinman may be a nice guy, but he needs to learn that exaggerating one's open source bonafides, especially when said bonafides are in serious question, is bad form in open source. Talking about how much money you spend on open source (especially when it's not true), is doubly gauche. It just doesn't win the kinds of friends that Novell desperately needs.

Justin managed to fail on several different levels, which is impressive. Here are two.

These are the most exciting Linux powered devices

What started off as a hobby project for the Finnish engineer Linus Torvalds, has turned into a global phenomenon. Today Linux is literally powering the modern economy – everything from Amazon public clouds, stock exchanges, and social networks run on Linux. It also runs in devices like sensors, printers, routers…and what not. Linux virtually owns the smartphone market with Android. Read more

FreeBSD News: 64-bit Inodes and KDE

  • FreeBSD Lands Support For 64-bit Inodes (ino64 Project)
    While Linux and other operating systems (including DragonFlyBSD) have supported 64-bit inodes for data structures on file-systems, FreeBSD has been limited to 32-bit. But thanks to the work of many on the ino64 project, FreeBSD now has support for 64-bit inodes while retaining backwards compatibility.
  • KDE FreeBSD CI (2)
    The KDE Continuous Integration system builds KDE software from scratch, straight from the git repositories, and usually from master (or whatever is considered the development branch). It’s been building for Linux for a long time, and has recently been expanded with FreeBSD servers as well. KDE sysadmin has been kind enough to provide two more VMs (with some more compiling “oomph”) so that we can keep up better, and the CI has just been expanded with all of the Plasma products. That means we’re now building KDE Frameworks, and the Plasma desktop.
