September 26, 2007 (Computerworld)Novell Inc.‘s Linux business has soared 243% since last November, when the company signed its controversial deal with Microsoft Corp.

“The affect on sales year over year, for Novell’s first three quarters of our fiscal year, which ends Oct. 31 — our Linux business was up 243%,” said Justin Steinman, director of marketing at Novell, who, along with executives from both companies, spoke at a program hosted by the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council.

And, that growth doesn’t seem to be short-lived.

“We’re continuing to see above market growth year [over] year and that clearly has resulted in the 243% Justin alluded to,” said Susan Heystee, general manager of global strategic alliance at Novell.
