Novell seeks to further promote Linux in China

By Derek Sooman on April 27, 2005, 6:07 PM
Linux advocates Novell have announced a partnership with a leading Chinese organization to help expand and promote Linux in China. Together with China Standard Software Co., Ltd, Novell will work towards giving Chinese organizations enterprise-class Linux services and local and global support.

"Local partnerships are vital in the Chinese market, so this is a big step forward. We believe success in China can have an important impact for Linux, and Novell's role in Linux, in the broader Asian market. So while I wouldn't call this a 'new' push in Asia for us, I'd certainly call it an important step forward." - Novell spokesman Bruce Lowry.
