Journal Degrees's Journal: GroupWise 8 ships

It's been a long time, but GroupWise 8 has finally shipped. The article gets one thing wrong - GW 7 had a Home View; what's new in GW 8 is that the home view now shows up on the other clients as well. Speaking of which, what's really new with GW 8 are the additions to the Linux client. In the beginning of the beta test, Novell was told that, as a Linux company, their groupware product should treat Linux as a first-class platform, not second class. Yes, GroupWise runs on the back-end on Linux great (and has for years) - but the client was less than impressive. If the GW 7 Linux client was 80% feature complete (compared to the Win32 client), then the GW 8 Linux client is 95% feature complete. WebAccess got a make-over too. Don't know about the Mac client though. Enabling busy search of published calendars via URL should be interesting.

Oh, and a slightly funny spin on a google blog: Radicati Study Sponsored by Google Shows Microsoft Exchange has 57% More Downtime than Novell GroupWise ;-)
