| range of successful Exchange SaaS specialists â including Azaleos,
| Intermedia, and mindSHIFTâs groupSPARK business.

| up a test Web site that allows people to pull in their contact information

Source Alternative to Microsoft Exchange

,----[ Quote ]
| Open-Xchange, the leading provider of open source groupware, today announced
| a new offering for small- and medium-size businesses (SMBs) seeking

R.I.P. Exchange?

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the years, many of Microsoft monopolies have been successfully attacked
| by open source: Linux on the server; Apache for Web servers; Firefox for Web
| browsers; and so on.
| [...]
| Cisco is buying PostPath, and that is going to kick Exchange in the head. You
| see, is an open-source based server program that doesn't just do e-mail and
| groupware, it actually has reverse-engineered Microsoft Exchange's protocols.
| Result: To someone sitting at a desk looking at your copy of Outlook, you
| won't be able to tell the difference.


Open source could doom Exchange, one IT pro believes

,----[ Quote ]
| The following post is a guest blog from new Google Subnet blogger Garett
| Kopczynski who this week launched Network World's Google Watcher blog.
| Kopczynski is an IT professional for the city of Keene, N.H., and has been
| involved in the transformation of the IT group as it increasingly explores
| cloud computing and Google Apps. He writes: I am seeing the evidence of a
| fundamental shift to open source. The clunkiness of the IT world I have
| experience with brings to mind the time when dinosaurs roamed the Earth and
| mammals waited in the wings. As people are exposed to the possibilities of
| server side applications and program alternatives, I think they will feel
| less obliged to go with the current standard. AOL, for instance, was the
| easiest option for Internet in the 1990's, and yet it is no longer an
| indomitable presence. Open source could spell extinction for the current IT
| standards.


Microsoft Exchange dumped for Linux-based clone

,----[ Quote ]
| After conducting an evaluation of alternatives, the hospital decided not to
| upgrade to a newer version of Exchange. Instead, it went with a  Linux-based
| Exchange clone that it felt could meet the needs of its 700 users without
| forcing them and IT to learn a whole new system.



U.S. judge orders Intel to try to recover e-mails

,----[ Quote ]
| Farnan gave Intel 30 days to recover as many of the missing e-mails
| as possible and to draw up a report on the steps it is taking to do
| so, Mulloy said.


AMD: Intel Destroyed Evidence in Antitrust Case

Microsoft dirty tricks, part two (Bob Cringely)

,----[ Quote ]
| "So the outside vendor was Hewlett-Packard, one of Microsoft's
| hardware OEMs, which is to say Microsoft's bitch.
| The tape disappearance was blamed on HP, which  accepted the blame,
| and the employees directly involved kept expecting there to be
| repurcussions, especially legal ones.  They expected to be deposed by
| Burst lawyers.  But it never happened.
| This was, for Microsoft, a perfect ending. ..."


Bush team deletes embarrassing emails

,----[ Quote ]

| many key White House staffers have been deleted to avoid
| congressional subpoenas.


Virgin Media taps Microsoft in lengthy email outage

,----[ Quote ]
| A mysterious configuration problem was identified on one of VM's eight email
| server clusters last Wednesday. Microsft engineers have struggled to identify
| the cause, forcing several reboots.

,----[ Quote ]
| Western Australia's Department of Planning and Infrastructure (DPI)
| has revealed its Microsoft Exchange-based e-mail system is
| suffering frequent outages that are creating a risk of
| embarrassing public data loss.


Why Exchange could be in trouble

,----[ Quote ]
| Because Exchange is a whole other world, and, even with the large
| Exchange community, I find it equally opaque at times.
| So, for now at least, we went to the tried and true
| Postfix+Courier-IMAP solution that is ever so common in
| UNIX shops, companies that are open to using Linux, and ISPs.


Specsavers opens eyes to open source

,----[ Quote ]
| The group aims to have made the same transition across all its 960
| stores with Redhat, a version of the Linux open source operating
| system, being used to run its retail computer terminals. Four
| thousand of these have been transitioned so far, with another
| 4,000 still to be done in other countries.
| Its point of sale machines will also be moved to Linux, as will
| the servers running its stores and regional headquarters. The
| firm's large-scale data centre in Guernsey will be running Sun
| Solaris. It has also invested in an open source accounting
| package to run its financials outside the UK, which it is under
| an agreement not to name. The UK system won't change, said Khan,
| because he believed that "if it ain't broke, you don't fix it".


Read the Exchange 2007 small print

,----[ Quote ]
| Hmmm. Simplification? Sounds more like a way for Microsoft to wring
| more dollars from customers, to me.
