Novell Inc. Chairman and CEO Jack Messman is the opening keynote speaker at this year's LinuxWorld Expo & Conference in New York.
Accordingly, Novell Wednesday outlined key agenda items for the advancement of Linux. Having just closed its acquisition of SUSE LINUX AG on January 13, the company is planning to announce next week further initiatives to - as a company spokeman puts it - "further strengthen Linux security, expand Novell's range of partnerships and offer greater freedom of choice to IT customers."
In addition, Novell expects to make announcements "on Linux collaboration, the joining of a prominent industry organization, and developments in Novell Web services solutions," the spokesman said.
Novell will host a press conference at LinuxWorld Expo on Jan. 21 at 10 a.m. EST.
