I haven't given up on Novell. Given the choice, I'd be using it today. I still extoll its virtues to anyone who'll listen. I still root for NetWare, but I believe Linux has a better chance because its business model is the only one that can compete with Microsoft on a large scale. Of course, if the anti-trust remedies are adequate, perhaps NetWare, Navigator, WordPerfect, Lotus 1-2-3, and other former market leaders might make a comeback.
