Novell at one point had bought out the rights to the entire Unix kernel, using it to base their products; which is why their products are so secure and their servers are so stable: they have decades of testing into them.
Novell now funds the SUSE Linux distro for sale and for free use. They are also switching most of their corporate and networking products to the Linux kernel.
Another idiot, "Cail" states that the user name "Novell" will get you in to any network...However, the truth is, "Novell" will only get him in to the network he uses @ his school. The only user name that comes preinstalled is "admin" which REQUIRES a password. The reason "Novell" is your login name is because the idiot administrator where you work/go to school has set that to be the username / password with unlimited concurrent connections. (you both are jackasses)
