Novell reveals more of their open source strategy

BOSTON – As part of its transition to an open source software model, Novell will scale back its investment in some proprietary technology that competes with open source alternatives.

The company is planning announcements for the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo next month, and the BrainShare Conference in September,
