"A company led by former Novell executives said Thursday it
plans to build an open-source operating system that will be
compatible with Novell's NetWare. Timpanogas Research Group
(TRG), based in Novell's home state of Utah, hopes to offer its
NetWare-compatible OS to Novell customers in the second half of
2001, the company said in a statement."
"Dubbed MANOS (Metropolitan Area Network Operating
System), the proposed operating system will be based on a
software kernel similar to the kernel at the heart of Novell's own
NetWare SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) operating system,
"One of the authors of the MANOS kernel is Jeff Merkey, TRG's
chief executive officer, a former chief scientist at Novell. While
at Novell, Merkey was one of the engineers who wrote the original
NetWare kernel, according to TRG."
