Open-Xchange goes Express, sheds its Suse roots

,----[ Quote ]
| Second, and extremely interesting to me, Express Edition runs on Ubuntu. Why 
| does this matter? Well, for one thing it shows Ubuntu's stablity and 
| performance. But on an even more interesting note, take a look at 
| Open-Xchange's management team, and in particular its CTO, Jürgen Geck. You 
| might remember that he was the CTO at Suse....Or check out Open-Xchange's 
| co-founder and EVP of engineering, Martin Kauss. Yep, he was a Suse guy 
| before, too. The list goes on....

Review: Open-Xchange

,----[ Quote ]
| Looking for a Microsoft Exchange replacement, or a first groupware
| application for your organization? Check out Open-Xchange. I took it for
| a test drive and found it to be a solid product that works well with
| open source groupware clients, though its Web interface is a bit
| clunky.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
