Novell Plans Future of Red Carpet, ZenWorks

Novell lays out plans for Red Carpet and ZenWorks managment tools.

What will happen with Ximians Red Carpet system management tools for Linux, now that Ximian is part of Novell? At the BrainShare show this week, Novell officials gave a roadmap for integration between Red Carpet and its own ZenWorks tools for crossplatform management. Stops along the way include two upcoming product releases, codenamed Birdman and Brimstone.
