Hurray! Novell Client for Vista Released! (finally)

It's about time.

NOVELL: Cool Blogs » Blog Archive » Novell Client for Windows Vista - Update!

Only one problem....we are just now in the process of migrating all our desktop systems at work from Windows 2000 to XP Professional.

And the prognosis for Vista migrations?

Yeah right; maybe five years from now...

Would have been nice back when I had some virtual machines of the Vista RC's hanging around the workshop to test out "live".

I'll probably download the Microsoft Windows Vista Enterprise 30-Day Eval VHD just to give it a whirl or two.

Novell-related Blog of Note

Julie Smith posted a helpful comment in one of my posts recently.

I went to her site the back room tech to return a word of gratitude and was blown away.

She has a wealth of great tips and posts related to Zenworks and Novell (among other things).

So if you are involved in Novell support, you might want to drop in and check out Julie's offerings.

Time well spent.
