Not 100% there yet... No AFP support. Supposedly, that is coming in SP1. However, until Novell both provides stable AFP support and the APIs to developers to provide utilities, there is still a major hole in the platform.

Novell jumped the gun trying to drive people to Linux before having a full and robust alternative available. There are a LOT of shops which have become dependent upon the virtually transparent multi-Name Space support available on NetWare Servers.
