[techtalk] netware vs. linux..?

One major disadvantage with Linux (and unix-like OSs in general) is how
file and directory permissions are managed. Unix started out as a research
project, and the simplistic permission settings are indicative of this.
With Netware you can tailor permission settings to suit your needs.

In my experience Netware performs well as a file and print server, if it
is administered by someone who knows the product well.

Linux, FreeBSD, etc... can't be beat for the price ;-)
