Linux Redhead 7.x

    I haven't seen Novell but I have heard it has lesser exploits than Linux.

    Most use Linux as their web server because of open source policy.
    BTW most linux have to configured later for security because that totally depends on your definition of security.

    Well I am not in a position to answer your question as I have never had the oppurtunity to use Novel Netware but I have tried to point out some facts I have seen and some points that I have heard about the 2 OS's
