NetWare Retrospective

As I've recently been through a change of jobs I've had a lot of chance to look back on my career. That career is long enough to have included Novell NetWare in it quite prominently, though I no longer point that out on my resume unless I feel a specific employer would be impressed by that. Novell was doing a lot of familiar things 20-odd years ago, and this blog series will be a retrospective on some old-yet-new problems that were solved in the 90's, but we're still fighting today.
