VMware update adds better support for Netware

Never expected this:
"Expanded Support: The E1000 Intel network interface card (NIC) is now
available for NetWare 5 and NetWare 6 guest operating systems."

Just in time for NetWare to be EOLed. 😞

Which probably makes this an even more important function.
The great thing about virtualization is that it can extend old operating
systems that might have died due to lack of hardware drivers.

The support is there in update 3 as well, but not exposed into Virtual
Center - you need to edit the .vmx directly. And it works well, similar
throughput but lower utilization on the server.

How so? I don't know about you, but I'd rather not run an OS in
production that is no longer supported by the OS vendor regardless of
hardware support.

Heck look at the novell.support.netware.discontinued forum. There are
3.x servers still out there in production. Scary!

My old office still runs software that has been out of service for
years. Why? Because they, up till recently, had no choice. They are
slowly moving away from it, but their is no migration path for the old
data so the old system must continue to exist even if no new data is
entered. Virtualization is a good way to keep those systems alive.

People may not have a choice when it comes to custom apps. But there's
always a choice when it comes to OS.

Not if the app runs only on a specific OS...yes they are out there.

I doubt there are many out there which require NetWare. 🙂
