Unfortunately I will not be able to attend today but I am very
interested in the Novell/SuSe Linux. We have been a Red Hat shop for
sometime and are migrating to Red Hat Enterprise. I am open to the Novel
Linux. A few questions that you might ask are:
- What does Novell offer that Red Hat does not, especially in terms
- Does Novel plan on distributing Open AFS as a supported application?
Red Hat currently does not and this would help us out immensely.
- We want to get rid of NIS for distributed user passwd/home directory
location. Does Novell come with a "turn key" solution for this, like
It would be great if some minutes could be posted about the meeting.
Thanks for putting this together.
