Novell Linux technology head leaves

Novell’s chief technology officer for Linux is leaving the company as it continues to re-organise its growing Linux operations.

His departure follows the departure of Suse Linux co-founder Hubert Mantel, who left Novell last November.

Novell bought German-headquartered Suse Linux to kick-start its major move into the open-source Linux market.

Jeffrey Jaffe has been appointed CTO of the overall Novell group. Novell said Geck’s departure was amicable.

At its recently held Brainshare user conference in the US, Novell said its existing legacy Netware operating system users could have Netware support for up 2012.

Netware users had feared they would be forced to adopt purely Linux-based alternatives from the company, as the supplier expands its Linux-based server platform range.
