Novell, a long standing leader in Local Area Networking, has now taken up the Linux banner. With their recent acquisitions of Ximian and SUSE, they are now the largest company with a Linux distribution. With several of their recent releases, they are the only Linux distributor offering the new 2.6 kernel, both in an Enterprise Server and an Enterprise Desktop. Soon, they'll be combining Linux and NetWare in a new offering called Open Enterprise Server. In this talk, we'll examine these new releases of Linux and the impact they're having as organizations are moving to them.
Tim Kresler and Jim Moyta with Novell, represent a combined 30+ years IT experience, as vendors and as customers, consultant and manager. Currently, they're working with customers and partners, large and small, throughout Illinois and Wisconsin, to plan their moves to Linux.
