[ngw] What next for GW8 migration?

Probably of most immediate importance looks to be 64bit OS - since the next
version of GW will only be 64bit.  No need to back yourself up against a
wall with a 32 bit system and have to do this all again!

Novell has recently stated that SAMBA is fine as long as you are on at least
7.3 or 8.0.  We've all just been wary of it, and old habits and biases die
hard I guess.   For me, it's no bit deal to just ssh -X into the Linux box
and run ConsoleOne that way.  It takes about 2 minutes longer to get C1
loaded up in such a situation, but then I know everything is "okay" as far
as accessing the database goes.  So I keep my main PO on SLES (now SLES 11).
