It could be a Linux job:
=============================

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novell

In August 2003, Novell acquired Ximian, a developer of open source Linux applications (Evolution, Red Carpet and Mono). This acquisition signaled Novell's plans to move its collective product set onto a Linux kernel.

In November 2003, Novell acquired Linux OS developer SuSE, which led to a major shift of power in Linux distributions. IBM also invested $50 million to show support of the SuSE acquisition.

In mid-2003, Novell released "Novell Enterprise Linux Services" (NNLS), which ported some of the services traditionally associated with NetWare to SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server (SLES) version 8.

In November 2004, Novell released the Linux-based enterprise desktop Novell Linux Desktop v9, based on Ximian Desktop and SUSE Linux Professional 9.1. This was Novell's first attempt to get into the enterprise desktop market.

The successor product to NetWare, Open Enterprise Server, was released in March 2005. OES offers all the services previously hosted by NetWare v6.5, and added the choice of delivering those services using either a NetWare v6.5 or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server v9 kernel. The release was aimed to persuade NetWare customers to move to Linux.

I just had a flashback of all 3rd party modules running in Ring 0 on my
CPU.  It was quick, but it crashed and removed all traces from my memory.

Novell is now owned by MicroFocus, a company who also features flagship
COBOL, mainframe and CORBA solutions.  Personally, I don't think Netware
could find a better final resting place, wasting away with the rest of
the dinosaurs....

"Novell Administrator"  was my job title back in the late 1990's, even tho network admin  was maybe 5% of what I did on a daily basis.   


20 years later and I still haven't had a job where the job title fits the actual workload, lol.


In the early 2000's after I had left the "novell admin" job, I remember playing around with some software that would make a Linux box act like a Novell server...    I don't know why...   I guess I was bored.    I'm surprised people are still using Novell

I got my start in *nix when Novell discontinues Netware in favor of SLES.  So I had a little experience running eServices under Linux.  

I remember NLMs and Groupwise, BorderManager and all the good Novell stuff.  I guess I just didn't realize it existed even under MicroFocus.
