      I'm in too minds about this, spotted this news a couple of weeks ago I think. As an administrator of a purely novell shop, I get the feeling that this is a bit of a publicity stunt on both parts. I guess I can vaguely understand that linux is linux is linux, but I do feel that gaining the cert in this way is nothing more than gaining a paper cert.

      You wont know anything about any Novell products, Iprint, Edirectory, Netware (god forbid someone gets dumped infront of a netware box and be told to "go configure" cause you got a Novell cert), or anything else

      I dont see what benefit this will give the holder of the certificate other than raising the profile of Novell (in a rather untasteful manner).
