I'm set to interview Novell CEO Ron Hovsepian and Chief Marketing Officer/Channel Chief John Dragoon at the Novell BrainShare conference in Salt Lake City, Utah on March 22. Here are five key questions for Hovsepian and Dragoon, with the emphasis on the future of Novell and SUSE Linux.

Novell’s marketing chief has been kissing bottoms and suppressing criticism of Novell in blogs [1, 2]. Novell’s idea of doing business includes silencing sources of bad publicity, apparently.
