Hoping to put a dent in early sales of Windows 2000, Novell has launched a Web site detailing the relative advantages of the latest version of its own operating system, NetWare 5.1.
“On this site, Novell will help you separate the hype from the reality, and give you compelling reasons why Novell’s networking solutions fulfill today’s business needs more effectively than Microsoft’s,” reads the text on Novell’s Windows 2000 Web site.

Microsoft’s next-generation platform is due to launch officially on Feb. 17.
