NetWare was a computer network operating system developed by Novell, Inc. originally released in 1983. Netware was used in multitasking and programming on personal computers and later became something that could be added to any suitable computer build, making their mainframe both independent and accessible. Novell released a series of products for CP/M, MS-DOS, and Windows that facilitated peer to peer networking and workplace networking systems that seemed to overshadow Netware as technology was advancing in the 1990s and early 2000s. As other products became more popular and competition from big names like Microsoft drew away business, Novell discontinued Netware in 2009 and stopped supporting it entirely in 2017.
