Could someone explain to me, now that our 6.5 licenses are a year old,
why Novell wants me to pay $100/seat to purchase upgrade
protection/maintenance/whatever? Perhaps I am not understanding the
offerings or the upgrade path correctly, but we have no intention of
moving to a *nix version of Netware any time soon. As long as our boxes
are working and working well, Novell continues to supply service packs
and fixes as necessary, etc., we would like to stay right where we are.

Not an install/upgrade question in the literal sense but certainly
relevant to whatever our next Netware upgrade will be.

Thanks in advance.
