Novell has opened the core protocols of its key Netware network operating system in a bid to attract third party developers onto its platform.
The source code is available now and published free on the Netware development kit. The surprise, but long awaited move, will lay bare the company's crown jewels. According Chris Stone, Novell's senior vice president, strategy and corporate development, the only parts the company will keep will be certain security protocols.
Eric Schmidt, Novell chief executive, said the company wants the development of more directory enabled applications: "We've never supported that community very well. This is a serious part of our strategy."
