Is this because we're dying and retiring?

Ain't seen much Novell and I'm in the middle of tech nirvana (Silicon Valley).

kind of rhetorical why question as Netware certainly seems dead  given the Attachmate aqisistion.

Not really sure what the question is. I held certs of CNA, CNE3, CNE4, ECNE, and (I think) MCNE. What I learned during these years about troubleshooting networks, applications, and hartdware has certainly served me well over the years, and I'm certainly not dead yet...

Kind of a statement/question.

I've installed a lot of Novell product and I haven't touched the it in literally years because the demand just isn't there.
Novell as a partner has kind of sucked too because every time you turned around ,they changed things.
Actually I was surprised to see Brainshare back as it has been on hiatus for quite a while.

This forum has been very dead for a couple of years now and was just pondering have I missed something in Novell making a comeback?

I agree.  Since there was no relevant question, there can be no relevant answer.  

To directly answer your question: Yes, some NetWare CNE's have died and retired.  

Or, you could look at it as the people who have been in the IT industry for 25+ years will all have CNE certifications, since this was before the M$ days.  And anyone with 25 years of experience will certainly be at the management level by now, and will therefore be making more.
