Pay no attention to the man talking to the curtain

Still talking out of both sides of his mouth (and hoping no one can keep both sides in view), Jack Messman supposedly told eWeek that Novell will Drop Standalone NetWare before the year is out. The NetWare 7 kernel will ship as part of the new Open Enterprise Server, but that will also include the SuSE 9 operating system - Messman's preferred choice for your hardware. So even though you won't be able to buy NetWare, per se, after this year runs out, Messman still had the nerve to say "We are still committed to it and it is not going away."

We know its not going away, Jack, because users will continue to run it until the cows (and the penguins) come home. There are still NetWare 2 servers out there and they haven't shipped in a dozen years!
