Ray Noorda, R.I.P.

Raymond J Noorda, former CEO of Novell, passed away yesterday.

He took a project, S-Net from a group of young programmers including Drew Major, and made it into the powerhouse Novell NetWare.

I made my first bones hawking Netware as my NOS of choice before we - thank God - moved to NT and the various flavors of Windows Server.

Ray Noorda was a true visionary, and had the best interests of partners at heart.

R.I.P. Ray.
