Comment: Novell, Linux, Netware, and Schools (Score 1) 111

It seems like public schools everywhere (up here in Maine, U.S. anyway) still use Netware for everything. I've always thought it would make sense for Novell to migrate them to a Netware/SuSE solution. The kids would win, because (hopefully) a Microsoft-free solution would be a lot cheaper for the schools, and Novell wins by keeping customers who will otherwise inevitably leave their platform as it ages.
