"Caldera Systems on Thursday hired open-source guru John Terpstra to be its technology vice president in a push to link the company with outside open-source efforts."
"In addition, Terpstra will continue his long-running interest of standardizing how Linux works, a key element for companies writing software that must install and run on versions of Linux from Caldera, Red Hat, Turbolinux, SuSE and others...."
"Terpstra is a co-founder of the Samba project, open-source software that allows Linux or other operating systems to share files on Windows networks. File sharing, along with sending Web pages to browsers, was one of the popular uses of Linux computers that helped establish a foothold for the operating system in its earlier years."
