Novell Strikes Three Open Source Deals
Novell drove home its open source gospel Tuesday, trotting out three major converts to its Linux software suites: the Finnish military, a New England bank and a New York hospital chain.
The announcements came on the second day of BrainShare Global 2006, the week-long conference that has drawn more than 6,000 Novell users, developers and sellers to the downtown Salt Lake Convention Center.
"In three months, Novell stabilized our entire e-mail system and put us on a path to managing all our desktops," Ken Lobenstein said. "We've made more progress in the last few months than we had in the previous two years."
