I work for a small rural school board in Ontario Canada and we have been a Novell shop for over 14 years. While most school boards in Ontario have moved from Novell to a well known competitor (who I will not name), we have remained true the company and its products - especially ZENworks. When I meet with school board employees from around the province we are constantly asked the same question - "Why do you stick with ZENworks?". And just like I mentioned above, the answer is always simple enough - "IT DOES EVERYTHING AND I USE IT FOR EVERYTHING!!!"
