Your chance to tell Novell what you really want with your Linux

Novell is conducting a survey on its "Cool Solutions" Web site to determine which applications you, dear reader, wanted to run on a Linux platform but couldn't.

For the record, an MS operative confirmed this morning that this is "an old advertisement which ran only in New Zealand for a short period and is no longer being used".
