Comment A link would have been nice (Score 4, Informative) 164

Here's the direct link to go read about it if you don't want to go through the networkworld blogspam article: http://www.open-xchange.com/

The "Server edition" is $1300, and they make you open a blind link to a PDF to figure that out.

Here's a handy feature matrix but noticeably absent is the free "community edition": http://oxpedia.org/index.php?title=OX_Product_Matrix

Also, the activesync thing (oxtender) is completely non-free and only available in the licensed versions.

Comment Memory Utilization on Windows (Score 0, Redundant) 366

Right now I have MORE tabs open on firefox than I do on Chome. Firefox is using ~220MB private bytes, Chrome is using ... *adds up the 10 freaking processes*... 640MB (651MB if you count the googletalkplugin.exe).

This is OK on my development machine here, because I have 8GB, but I could see where someone with only 1-2GB might not like Chrome. It would constantly cause paging.

BioWare On Building a Community For Dragon Age 34

Ray Muzyka, co-founder of BioWare, sat down with Gamasutra to discuss upcoming RPG Dragon Age: Origins, as well as some of the features they're working on for release alongside the game. In particular, they are interested in building a framework for players to show off their characters and share stories about the gameplay they encounter. "We're creating a community site that's going to enable the fans to get revved up about what each other is doing. They're showing their choices and consequences to friends. Even though it's single-player, you can still reveal those choices to each other and have fun doing it. It enables some of that stuff that occurs anecdotally amongst friends at the water cooler: 'Hey, did you play this yet? Did you go this way?' 'No, I didn't run into that. I did it this way.' 'Really? I didn't run into that at all!' You can meet people who are across the world and enable them to see those kinds of things, too, which I think will lead to a lot of fun discussion and collaboration in the community."
