Novell Inc. has acquired privately-held Ximian, a provider of desktop and server solutions that enable enterprise Linux adoption. Novell is a provider of information solutions that deliver secure identity management, Web application development and cross-platform networking services, all supported by strategic consulting and professional services.

The acquisition of Ximian expands Novell's ability to support Linux solutions as the company adds Linux desktop, groupware, and management technologies to its offerings. Novell intends to carry forward two key Linux market initiatives through Ximian that reinforce Novell's commitment to the open source community: GNOME, a project to provide a full-featured Linux desktop; and Mono, designed to allow applications developed using Microsoft's .NET to run on Linux, Unix, Windows, and other platforms.
