CEO Jack Messman talks about Novell's present and future
Novell has its ups -- the promise of its new desktop -- and its downs -- its last quarter's results -- but Jack Messman, the company's CEO is determined to see the open-source course his way.
In an interview with Linux-Watch, Messman explained where he thinks the company is today and where it, and its Linux products, are going.
Regarding the company's disappointing performance last quarter, Messman said that "We don't run the company on the quarterly basis." But, if you look closely, you'll see that "We beat the estimates last quarter. We gave them guidance that was conservative, but the stock got hit anyway."
