Other Notable Deaths


October 15, 2006

Raymond J. Noorda, a co-founder of Novell Inc., a software company that helped pioneer computer networking, died of complications from Alzheimer's disease Monday at his home in Orem, Utah. He was 82.

He was the chief executive of Novell from 1983 to 1995, a period of explosive growth in the use of computers in businesses and homes. During that time, a software program developed by Novell called NetWare was used extensively by businesses and other organizations to link together, or network, individual desktop computers so they could share printers and files.
