More Novell disties to go in autumn cull

Filed under
SUSE

Novell will axe another 10 per cent of UK distributors currently partnering with the software vendor by the start of November this year.

The company has told disties targeted with the chop that their contracts would come to an end with the software vendor over the course of the next month or so.

However, Novell has declined to confirm which disties it has decided to cut loose in the latest cull.

The firm recently took on Avnet as a distribution partner. It also currently has Bell Micro, Magirus, DNS Arrow, ETC, Interactive Ideas and CMS Peripherals on its books.

“We will reduce another 10 per cent between now and 1 November and then we will be steady,” the firm’s EMEA channel veep Dan Veitkus told The Register yesterday.

No one knows when it will happen. No one knows the magnitude. Read more

Android Marshmallow on PC Falls Flat

The Android-x86 Project eventually may become a viable operating system alternative for your desktop and laptops computers, but it's not there yet. You will have to wait a while for the developers to fix a number of failures with the latest release upgrading Android-x86 to Marshmallow 6.0.1. The developers late this summer released the first stable version of Android-x86 6.0, codenamed "Marshmallow." Android-x86 lets you run the Android OS with the Google Chrome browser on your desktop and laptop computers, rather than buying one of the qualified Chromebooks with the Google Play Store features bolted on.
