Justification for a Rift purchase found, now to fund it and get on the development learning curve!
They seem to be suffering from a massive influx of users. It seems to be getting better stability wise since I first started using it. It also has an original view, which is awesome for sites that annoyingly just put a link to the content, rather than the content on the feed.Three Months to Scale NewsBlur
It's also OSS if you wish to host it yourself, you can find it here.
Interestingly enough - and not mentioned in the summary - this doesn't impact BES 10. It's only BES for legacy devices that are affected.
Considering BES 10 doesn't support Legacy devices and this is corporates we're speaking about, 'only' probably is the wrong word to be using here.
There are great alternatives for Groupware. However people don't actually want exchange, they want outlook. It's a tool they are familiar with and have built up years of workflow around it. It's horrible, unstable, ugly, but people cling to it. It's a safety blanket.
I reckon the current version of Zimbra is looking to be quite a suitable replacement and it's built using OSS products. There are paid for enterprise versions, which get you things like ActiveSync (presumably they have to pay MS for a license to use that), but it's pocket change compared to a full blown exchange implementation. The administration has a decent easy to use CLI and the web admin side of things is really comprehensive. No more pulling up emc to do one bit, then powerhell, then webmail and finally the last bit in Outlook.
Moving back on topic, Samba 4 should mean that things that absolutely have to talk LDAP in MS's broken way will mean absolutely no need for a windows box on your network
I had a 21" Sun CRT . During a clean a shed clean out that my friend was helping me with and I said "Be careful, that things fricken heavy, I'll move it if you want", he insisted he'd be right. He went to pick it up like a normal CRT, safe to say he put it down and then picked up with a lot more knee bending and exclaiming "F*** me that thing is heavy!".
I used it as a TV on one of my early Mythbox setups for a while, but it bent the desk it was sitting on, so I ended up buying an LCD.
Anyone with a mind set in reality will understand how didiculous that is!
