Novell's BrainShare is just days away. A time when the Novell faithful flock to Salt Lake City to see what Novell has been up to in the past year -- and to see what future promises are made. This year the focus will again be on Linux from the desktop to the enterprise data center. Virtualization, identity management, and security also are slated as big topics -- based on the number of class sessions listed in their session catalog. I'll be attending the event, and blogging about what I see and hear. Check back from March 16 to March 21 for my updates.
