Novell surrounds Microsoft Exchange
Novell this week announced support for Microsoft Exchange 2003 via its Ximian Connector for Microsoft Exchange. This will allow Linux and Sun Solaris clients the same rights, privileges and controls when attached to Exchange as a Windows email client.
This means that Linux desktop users can manage their e-mail, calendars, group schedules, address books, public folders and tasks in Exchange. Ximian is the company that Novell bought in August which has worked on the Gnome desktop GUI for Linux and this underlined a strategic switch to Linux for Novell.
