And we are considering the Silver Platter Medline for a Novell network
with Mac support. Should give 5 years for connected PCs, and a Mac
program supporting the 5 y compression has been promised available soon
(well, already for half a year...)
  This solution is because more than half of the connected computers are
PCs, but then nearly half are Macs.
