PRNewswire: Timpanogas Research Group… to Provide NetWare [Support]… for Caldera’s SCO Unix…

“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.”
