Good on Chris Harvey (MD) .... he finally achieved a sale for Salmon. They have been trying to get a good price for it for the last 3 years.

Saying that, not sure what Novell are paying for, as half the so called employees of Salmon are just long term contractors, they may fly the coockoo's nest, these are actually the ones who have Java/webapplication skills etc. Out of the remaining employees a rather large proportion are people with legacy skills like 'natstar' and 'pacbase', these are the skills the company started with.

But good luck to Chris and Novell to achieve the deal.
