I am working on a project for my Novell class and wanted to get some input from other networkers in the world. The project requires us to do a comparison of Windows 2003 and Novell Netware. Specifically their web management capabilities, security features, backup capabilities, fault tolerance mechanisms, audit capabilities, and performance monitering. The NOS we choose in the end would be used in 24 sites over 4 states, 25 workstations per site. One server farm at their central office.

From what we have learned in the class so far Novell Netware seems to be the better choice but would like the input of some professionals as well.
