"After nearly two years of talk, the Provo, Utah, company plans to pull the trigger on a broad Linux strategy at its BrainShare user conference in Salt Lake City next month."

"The centerpiece will be Novell's release of NDS (Novell Directory Services) eDirectory for Linux. The company plans to open some of that code base for the Linux community under its own open-source license, according to sources familiar with the plans."

"Novell (Nasdaq:NOVL) is also developing a Linux version of its GroupWise groupware, although the product may not be ready for a BrainShare launch, sources said. Parts of that GroupWise code, along with any other Linux-based code Novell develops, will be available under Novell's open-source license, the sources added."

"Novell's endorsement will add more enterprise legitimacy to Linux by providing the open-source platform with a full-scale enterprise directory service for the first time."
