Novell has released a new version of its Netware operating system, quashing rumours that it was planning to leave the market to Microsoft Windows and Linux.

The news came at the company's Brainshare event, where the latest version of Netware, codenamed Nacoma, was unveiled.

Analyst Gary Barnett of Ovum said, "As far as the network operating system side of Novell's business is concerned, it is trying to keep its existing user base happy but it is unlikely to win new customers. It has been a good product but Netware will not rock the world and is in graceful decline."

Peter Joseph, Novell's EMEA director for corporate strategy, said, "Market forces mean companies are looking at environments such as Linux. But Novell is committed to Netware and it will be around for some time to come."
