The infrastructure monopoly has done its best so far to survive the platform the industry had been given to take its pound of flesh, but with the tribunal hearing postponed to March, it looks like it will have to take it like a man for yet a while longer.
Meanwhile, the IT head of the University of the Western Cape has thrown his toys out the cot, and sworn on all the free software in the world that he will do everything in his power to ensure that all educational institutions across the country are rid of the evil that is Novell, accusing the company of being unscrupulous and willing to betray its customers.
Those in the know say this IT chief`s rantings are definitely being taken seriously and making waves in the industry.
On another note, the year has flown by under a cloud of skinder and scandal, and it pains me to see that increasing incidents of corruption are bubbling to the surface.

`Till next week.
