Linux

Linux software company Novell Inc. of Waltham confirmed yesterday that it is laying off about 600 workers, or 10 percent of the company's worldwide workforce of 5,800. The layoffs, long rumored within the software industry, are part of a restructuring plan that aims to cut Novell's annual operating expenses by about $110 million.

Novell spokesman Bruce Lowry said that fewer than 30 workers at the company's Waltham offices would be affected. The biggest concentration of Novell workers, about one-third of the total, are based in Utah, where the company was founded. About 200 Utah workers would be hit by the layoffs, with other job losses to come from Novell facilities around the world.
