"Network software maker Novell today announced plans to fully embrace Linux."
"Having previously dabbled with the "open source" software movement, Novell said it plans to make versions of its networking software available for Linux users and launched a version of its directory services for the growing operating system."
"Novell said it currently is shipping a version of its NDS eDirectory software for Linux. Directory software essentially serves as a central "phone book" for network-based computing assets and information about computers and users, software and network devices...."
"But Novell executives said the directory will be just the tip of the iceberg, with the company's related software also moving to Linux through this year and next. That means associated software for network caching and PC and server management will be available for Linux, among other products."
