Open Source Renaissance- What Novell Is Doing to Make Open Source a Mainstream Reality on theDesktop and Server
David Patrick, Vice President & General Manager, Novell Resource Management Services and Ximian Group

Track: Keynote
Date: Friday, July 30
Time: 9:30am - 10:15am
Location: Oregon Ballroom


Novell used to be "The NetWare Company." Today, Novell is one of the most dynamic open source advocates and drivers on the planet. How did Novell manage this transformation and, more importantly, what is Novell doing to manage competing forces on the desktop (KDE vs. Gnome), foster open source innovation (OpenOffice, Mono, etc.), and generally push open source to the next level of adoption? In this keynote, the architect of Novell's open source strategy will detail the company's vision for open source on the desktop and server, and what it is doing to bring that vision to fruition.
