Whither Novell?

An interesting article in IT Week titled “Novell Takes Linux Exit; To Drop NetWare?” I was a Novell CNA (Admin not CNE, Engineer) for Novell 3.x, and it was a powerful, scalable network OS. It was absolutely swamped by Windows, though, and seemed to muddle through a number of initiatives that were unclear. Their directory services, though, I hear, are the crown jewel of the company at this point. Not connected with the news in that part of the world, I missed the Cambridge Technology Partners acquisition – those are sharp guys. It will be interesting to see which direction the company takes from here. Thanks to the post on OSNews
