Now as the end of the year is approaching and workgroup products are not
the stars in the Novell portfolio, it would be nice to know whether
something is happening in the bordermanager area. The most annoying
thing is that the customer does not know what is going to happen. As
firewalls are not the least critical component in a company, it is very
important to spread confidence. Up to now this has not been the case.
How can I have confidence into a company that does promise things that
get not fulfilled.

I agree that things can change - but when this happens you should
communicate this. Under these circumstances I wonder also about the
future of OES, Groupwise. Some clarification is really needed.
