Pure speculative discussion follows (if you are so inclined to wonder and comment with your best guesses):
Do you expect the new Novell "Neutron" file access ecosystem as outlined here to supplant the current iFolder client and traditional Novell NCP mapped drives sourced from the Novell Client for file sharing in the future or do you suppose things will continue to be a mixed approach going forward, depending on an organization's needs? OR will what we now know as quintessential NetWare/OES core services be considered "legacy" services Novell will recommend moving away from within the next one or two OES releases? Will those traditional Novell services die the slow death of limited attention or outright abandonment or will they be upgraded along with other new "cool" features?

Some exciting things are potentially on the way it seems...but is it more Windows Serverish copycat (having the user feel as if they are connected to a Windows Server domain) or will it still feel like NetWare services at heart?...
