don't think so.
the "one of a kind" Jeff Merkey has allegedly been writing lots of
Netware stuff for linux including fs support over the last year. But
he had one of his 'turns' and announced to l-k that he was canceling
it cause linux was a load of steaming poo compared to NT, and that he
was amazed that anyone could take this linux shit seriously
considering what children it's developers were, and that if released
nwfs it'd get stolen by MS and kill Netware off totally. Instead he's
going to write his own OS -> ManOS -> a Novell clone...
Jeff Merkey quotes (paraphrased):
- "i have 3 brains like einstein"
- "you guys are children, we spent months with a bus analyser to come
with an optimisation for Netware 4 - set the dirty and accessed
page bits on page creation"
l-k response: "uhmm jeff, that optimisation is obvious from the
intel doc's and if you look at the linux code it's been there
nearly from the beginning"
- "sorry about that last email, i was drunk. can we be friends
a never ending source of hilarity is Jeff Merkey.
Netware FS support for linux? sorry.
