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.
