Novell and Ximian Novell on Nov. 30 announced its latest NetWare upgrade operating system, the Linux-powered Novell Open Enterprise Server 2. OES, which will be based on Novell's SLES 10, is designed to be a drop-in replacement for Novell NetWare servers, and a direct competitor to Microsoft's Server 2003.

The NetWare Kernel on Xen should still have IPX support because unless I'm mistaken, bare metal NetWare 6.5 SP6 supports it. OES Linux probably does not support it. The NetWare kernel will still be NetWare, just living in a different house. According to Jason Williams, OES product manager, they have gotten NetWare on Xen within 5% of the performance of bare metal NetWare 6.5 SP6.
