"Timpanogas Research Group, Inc. located in Orem, Utah is pleased to announce it will provide NetWare File System and Migration Capabilities on Caldera's SCO Unix Technologies. TRG is also announcing that it will postpone plans to provide an Open Source NetWare Directory Services Implementation on the Linux platform."

"TRG's CEO Jeff Merkey stated, "Based on our early analysis of Caldera's impressive product offerings and technical and management talent, we believe that Caldera's future platform offerings will provide the enterprise class capabilities that internet-aware companies will need in their businesses. We plan to provide NetWare interoperability and migration components to enterprise customers who want to migrate and deploy these platforms in existing NetWare environments."

"TRG is also issuing the following statement regarding prior plans to provide an Open Source NetWare Directory Services on the Linux Platform. "TRG is focusing it's efforts in the NetWare market towards preserving and promoting Novell's NetWare technologies in an Open Source Form and making them more pervasive to enterprise customers through it's MANOS Open Source Initiative. We will be providing an Open Source NDS on MANOS 2H 2001 that will be freely available to the Linux Community at that time. It is not our desire at this time to hand Microsoft or anyone else an open source "scythe" they can use to harvest the NetWare installed base until a competitive Open Source NetWare NOS is available for Novell's customers to consider."
