Submission + - Novell ponders "open-source apps store" (

Barence writes: "Novell plans to bring the wealth of open-source software to everyday users through an "open-source apps store". "I would compare what's happening on netbooks with what's happening to the smartphone," Holger Dyroff, vice president of business development at Novell told PC Pro. "There's a core experience, but then the ability to customise that experience. On the user end, all they'll see is an open-source applications store with one-click downloads of new software. Unlike the other stores though, they won't have to pay for any of those applications, which will be very attractive.""
