Based on the email I received I would say that many Port 25 readers noticed my post last week on job openings in my new lab. Thank you for your positive responses (and especially the resume submissions)! Brad Cutler, my counterpart at Novell, has been overwhelmed with responses as well, so thank you on his behalf.

I’ve called this a sneak peek because there is much work ahead of us, but it’s time to talk in a little more detail about what the lab will be doing. I and my colleagues at Novell and within Microsoft have been putting in long hours for the last several weeks – nights and weekends as well – detailing the plans for our work together.

We’ve recently posted some backup and anti-virus partner profiles as part of a Cool Solutions article. These profiles explain what these partner products support in OES today. Yes, we do have support for NetWare, and more importantly, we do have partners that support OES — specifically NSS volumes on Linux, eDirectory and GroupWise environments. Take a look at the article and share it with others on your team. These partners have also stated early commitment for OES 2.
