Re: OpenGroupware? -- how is it "crippled" at the server???

Huh?  I didn't see that "crippling" at all.  It seems to be a full-up, XML-RPC, 
WebDAV, HTTP collaboration server.  What do you see is "crippled" on the server?

They _only_ charge for the 100% client-side MAPI client.  When do you need 
such?  _Only_ when your client is Windows, and _only_ when it is running 
Outlook.

Understand this isn't merely a "we charge for Windows" view.  It's a "we charge 
for Microsoft" view.  You _can_ use _other_ Windows clients for both WebDAV/XML-
RPC/HTTP access to its collaboration and server-side storage solutions (e.g., 
Mozilla).

Again, I'm confused.   I see OpenGroupware fitting the same bill.

[NT-based] Windows itself has never been the primary issue with
security.  Secure configuration of Windows prevents 98% of Windows
software from working properly, especially Microsoft's own.
Hence why a secure Windows is not an option for enterprises and
consumers alike, since it would prevent them from working.
