Resellers - Tell your customers that they need to have pay Maintenance on
Novell SBE or they will not get patches and even access to Knowledgebase!

9 out of 10 of my customers said on pricipal they will not !

One client who's maintenance runs out this month is prepared instead to
spend a over 10,000 to move a SBE 25 users system over to MS SBS 2008.

The client knows we will charge them 2000 for moving GW to Exchange
This customer was looking to save money by not renewing the Maintenance on

The client said he felt he had enough of Novell's attitude... (no NSS, no
Zen, no support from partners like Veritas (no decent backup)

I have told them them that its very likely MS will do something similar soon

Two others are not very happy about this - similar size!

I think Novell should WAIT till MS - it will be more acceptable... but hey
who's gonna listen to me !
