When you look at ZfS, the next generation ZENworks will bring some change in the way we do Server Management, as such I don’t expect a lot of focus on the current ZSM version at BrainShare this year. I assume that a lot more info around this will follow at BrainShare and we’ll probably be posting lots of thing’s about our new release on Coolblogs as well. If you would like to know more about ZfS “in detail”, feel free to ask for me at the lab. I’ll probably be there some time during the week and will definitely be there at meet the experts.

My question in addition to Chris his comment, When is the (expected) release date of a 64bit Novell Client for Linux and the 64bit Zenworks for Linux which can be run on the x86-64 version of SLED10? Now we are forced to run a 32bit OS on a 64bit system due to a 32bit linux novell client needed for server based computing. Thank you

Well, I'll second Pete on that. We need to have a vista client to show very soon. It's getting harder and harder to fight the battle without the necessary ammunition. We're looking at making the leap to 64-bit and currently the Novell, Groupwise, iFolder, and ZEN clients don't work at all in that environment. I know it's not easy for development to get these clients going but it's gotta get done quickly.... Chris

Folks, Well, I can't tell if the interview was occurring on Dec. 14th, or if this is just the announcement date. If the interview *hasn't* occurred yet ... Long-time Novell customers remember the Microsoft antics that have led to the 'don't build the client until the MS O/S has shipped' policy. We do need a firm timeline in order to not look clueless in front of our organisations. We fight for you product(s) out there in our workplaces - we need Novell to help us when we're trying to manage things like 'the Vista tide'. Like any MS O/S release, it leads to a new round of questions about when we're going to convert our Directory, when we're going to convert our File and Print services, etc. There's only one thing I need to know about the Novell client right now: What's the release date for the Vista client? You're doing a great job with the show - great quality content, interesting, and with the odd quirky moments! Pete

Hi Ted and Erin. My question about Novell Client is about the Linux version of it. Any new nice features to look forward to? How is the integration with gdm going? Will we be able to log on to a linux workstation with the Novell Client without a local linux account (this is possible by enabling LUM i know)? Will we see the Novell Client for Linux becoming free software, if not will Novell enable builds of it for openSUSE and other Linux distributions? Warm Regards, Claes
