    My company at work use Netware 6.5 and are talking of upgrading their machines to Linux..

    I was just wondering if anyone could tell me exactly what Novell is doing regarding having what looks to me like 2 products which compete with each other??

    i.e. SUSE Linux range (Desktop and Enterprise Server) and the Novell range (Novell desktop and Open Enterprise Server)...

    The reason I ask is I intend eventually to do a Novell course and wondered what exactly the differences are!!

    simongrahamuk Hmmmmmmm?

    From what I believe they are essentially the same product, however if you buy the Novell version you get support thrown into the deal. In addition to this in the Novell version they have added some proprietry stuff in, where as the SuSE stuff is all Open Source.

    I could be way wrong here though. :rolleyes:

    Actually, I think it's a choice thing. Novell offers an Open Enterprise Server and you can choose to run either Netware or SUSE on it. Take a look at the link I'm posting and see if it answers your question.
