Now, I'm sure I'm offending about 100,000 people by making this post, but "suck it up."
Novell (and Windows, for this case) will defeat Linux. Maybe not in a year, but it will come eventually.
When you go to a store (or e-store), you can go and pick up a Novell or Windows title. Get home, pop the CD in, and install it. With lots of ease, and hardly and hassle.
Now, I know what a lot of you are thinking. You can also go into a store and purchase a Linux title. But you can't just come back to the machine and install it. EVERY Linux install is different. Some dont have any complier tools, some have old versions, some arent running x11, so on, and so on. How do you manage a network when everything is different? It's damn near impossible.
Windows and Novell are STANDARDIZED. You get one set of installed files with it. When you try installing things onto these operating systems, there is absolutly NO guesswork.
