Hey, anything that makes Novell/SuSE look more sinister/evil I'm all for at
this point. Their fiery end cannot come soon enough for my taste.

Thanks for the clarification. I've been kinda bad at that today. Didn't
mean for it to sound like netware ran on anything. Netware was it's own
server, and the best way to do network drive shares 10+ years ago. ...And
if I remember correctly cost about 40 grand (which is a large part of the
reason it doesn't exist anymore).
