I happened to stop by cnetnews.com today and found this little ad:

>>

BorderManager Now Astaro – www.astaro.com
Astaro Security Gateway takes place of Novell BorderManager. Free Trial
<<

I was under the impression Novell intended to at least do BM3.9, so is
this just misleading advertising, or is it a done deal?

I've looked at astaro, and, frankly, I don't see it as a replacement for
BM. At least it it is a replacement for BM in the same way that any
other content filtering solution would be a replacement for BM.

Cheers,
Ken
