Novell's Linux makeover
The Novell CEO began an ambitious Linux overhaul of his company in 2003, acquiring SuSE Linux to provide an alternative to the fading NetWare operating system. Since then, the company has released a major new Linux edition, revamped sales, dropped its No. 2 executive and prepared a new version of NetWare: Open Enterprise Server, which comes with Linux built in.
