What's new with eBox

<< < (2/9) > >>

Todd Hughes:
eGroupware has themes. The Ebox admin interface doesn't, but the users don't see that.

Regarding Zimbra; the company I work for (my day job) makes mucho $$$ selling and supporting the open source version of Zimbra. We even provide it as a hosted solution.  ;)

(I really like the super-powerful command line administration available in Zimbra. Makes the GUI look like a toy compared to what you can do with the zm* command line language.)

Well, judging by another thread next door, this SBS upgrade can take days to complete (and requires a hardware upgrade if SBS 2003 was running on 32 bit stuff).   ;D

Actually it's a migration- not an upgrade. You have to have both SBS2003 and SBS2008 running at the same time.  I'm shocked about how long it takes as well.  I could setup an entirely new SBS network and transfer user shares and accounts as well as join the workstations to the new domain faster than that (well, for small networks anyway).

I thought I saw that here, but didn't see it in LLUG. I see it is in Open Source. I just installed it on my new server. nice little box for $500.
Came with free Xeon CPU and $100 gift card when I ordered it.
