I stumbled on this site today. I entered “When did NetWare first appear?” and it came back with a whole list of links and powerpoint presentations saying NetWare first appeared in 1983.
The fist versions of NetWare came out in 1981, but hey, who’s keeping track? So far I like this engine.
If you type the same sentence in Google, it comes up with links to Novell and info on the current version of NetWare.
