Novell to Drop Standalone NetWare

Novell to Drop Standalone NetWare: "In an interview with eWEEK on Monday afternoon, Messman stressed that while NetWare would cease to exist as a standalone brand from the end of this year when it became a core part of its upcoming new Open Enterprise Server operating system platform, it would be supported and upgraded for a long time into the future as part of that product."

This is misleading -- Novell isn't dropping NetWare; it's creating a new platform that will include all NetWare services and run on top of either NetWare or SUSE LINUX.
