The only track record I am aware of is one for being the last to the market with a solution that their competitors have had for months or even years. There were several mobility products on the market before GMS came out. Given that it is better than any of the others IMHO, it was not there when we were begging for it. Now here we sit with a new mobile device (iPhone) that has been out for over a year and Novell still has not made any visible attempt to support the device. I can appreciate that it takes time to develop solutions, that they cannot turn them out overnight. But guys you don't have to wait until the technology is nearly antiquated before you decide to notice it. 2 years of support from Nokia just tells me that Novell just got a 2 year window to do nothing until the last minute.
Novell has been a leader and an innovator in many areas over the years, but mobile solutions have not been one of them.
