Reflecting its commitment to one of the fastest growing Linux markets, Novell has joined the China Linux Standards Group, launched this spring by the Chinese government to promote Linux* in China.

Representatives from Novell China will work with the Standard Group’s officials and other members to contribute to the group’s Linux standardization initiatives and education efforts, providing a unified push towards further Linux adoption in China.

The China Linux Standard Group was founded in April 2004 with approval from China’s Ministry of Information Industry. The group is responsible for developing and defining essential standards for Linux-related architectures. As the only global commercial Linux vendor formally part of the China Linux Standard Group, Novell will participate with other members to coordinate input from various local and national software development communities and Chinese enterprises, and provide Linux consulting and guidance to Chinese IT scholars and experts. This initiative is expected to significantly shape the emerging Linux market in China.

“We are pleased to see that Novell fully supports Chinese Linux standards,” said Doctor Zhang Hongfen, head of the China Linux Standard Group. “Novell’s membership will contribute significantly to the definition of Chinese Linux standards. Novell has been extensively involved in the definition of international software standards, with abundant experience in this field and a good relationship with global technology communities. This will help our group stay informed on the latest Linux trends in a timely and effective manner.”

“We are very happy that Novell can participate in the definition and execution of Linux-related standards in China,” said Luo Wei, marketing and channel director of Novell China. “Alone among global commercial Linux vendors, Novell has joined this project from the start as a formal member, reflecting both the China Linux Standard Group’s high opinion of Novell and Novell’s commitment to a greater focus on the Chinese market. Novell believes that the Chinese Linux Standards Group will play an important role in the development of the Chinese Linux industry, and, subsequently, the development of the global Linux industry.”
