I just read this on the CNet Daily News Briefing.  At first I thought it
was an oddly phrased statement about how Novell was getting cold feet with
Linux (a not surprising decision given current litigation on the ownership
thereof).  Then I realized that the opposite reading was actually
intended--they were 'rolling it out'.  Just a curiosity, but for your
reading pleasure:

Novell pledged Tuesday to deliver versions of its networking software on
Linux later this year and announced distribution deals with leading
hardware providers.
