  1. That very same survey has NETWARE as the second-best NOS – ahead of Win2k, but behind Win2k3 – yet more than TWICE of all Linux variants combined.

    Yet, Novell Management, in their infinite wisdom, still defends their p-poor decision to kill NetWare. I’m not so sure the right person resigned.

    ZENworks on NetWare – just look at the awards it won! BorderManager also was very respectable in the survey voting (second to Cisco PIX). Too bad it looks like Novell is killing off BorderManager, too.

    Strange logic.

    Great points. Novell, are you not listening to yourselves? You point out a survey that gives ZENworks great marks, but completely ignore the kudos NetWare receives.

    Behavior like this is what validates the perception that Novell is the one killing off NetWare, not customer demand.
