But in February, Novell is launching a competing suite of networking software that promises to offer similar flexibility, called ZENworks Up -- and it will not require buying new hardware, sticking to a single platform, or adopting a certain suite of applications. Businesses can even run Windows and Microsoft Office from it if they so choose."
