This statement is not accurate. NetWare doesn't require InfoWorld reporters to change their passwords. InfoWorld's administrator decided to require everyone (or maybe just P.J. Connolly) to change their passwords on a regular basis. This is a feature in NetWare to increase security. It allows an administrator to require passwords be changed every three, six, or nine months -- or never. I've had the same password for a few years because I asked my administrator to stop forcing me to change it. He kindly turned it off on my user object.
