NOvell's i-Folder will solve OS many mobile users issues and do it efficiently as it only updates what is changed instead of a full upload of all documents everytime. i[Folder SOLD me on thenew Novell by itself, I work allover the place and it is alfesaver, not to mention easy on bandwidth and upload restrictions from ISP's, thus reducing usage costs.
I have also run into issues with Great Plains on a Novell server, but it was due to the vendor customizing it and only for MS. They tried to make it mroe Netware complaint (though based on Unix) but it didn't work right until upgraded to Novell Linux. Prior to that, it would merely open in windowed mode. About 400 X 300px
That's the vendor's issue and MS's limitation though.
In order to mass sell product it has to be engineered to work WITH a MS environment, although loosely do to restricted access to source code.
People that make software that IS Novell compliant ensure it works seamlessly and resoucefully with it. Thus resulting in more stable software in the long run.
I would say you should do some research and see what you can et for or with Novell, most peoplehave no idea what's actually available as they are swamped by MS compatible offerings form sales peopleday in and day out,thus making it seem the only choice.
