I don't think that Windows 2003 is the best server OS ...
I think that NetWare 6.5 is better than W2K3 and is really very good Server NOS product which offers J2EE server, PHP, MySQL, Jakarta-Tomcat, iFolder, iPrint, Virtual Office, NetStorage, eDirectory based administration of Apache2, AFP, CIFS and NFS support, etc. Yes - many of these components are part of the most of the Linux distributions but now they fit perfectly in NetWare 6.5 and they are supported by Novell.
The addition of SuSE LINUX to the Novell's products is great as it will be possible many of the eDirectory based technologies to be available to Linux too.
I want to mention as a very good product for desktop management Novell's ZENworks for Desktops 4. It manages now only Windows based PCs but with the acquisition of Ximian I hope that Novell will be able to add a lot of the functionality of ZENworks for Desktops to Linux in addition to the Red Carpet functionality.
Nterprice Linux Services which Novell relaesed soon looks very promising too:
I believe that 2004 will be very exciting year as I hope a lot of new functionality to be added to Linux and its adoption to continue to increase!
