 Novell outlines open-source transition

"The company will make only minimal investments in its BorderManager VPN and other products in favor of open-source alternatives, as it tries to create a profitable blend of open- and closed-source products, said Alan Nugent, Novell's chief technology officer. Speaking in Boston before an audience of technology experts, systems administrators and open-source enthusiasts, Nugent voiced strong support for his company's decision to bundle its proprietary networking software with open-source products, and even envisioned a day when the Waltham, Mass., company might sell only open-source technology."
