me neither, but looking on the opengroupware pages it seems they opened
up their older product, and they didn't provide a client apart from a
webclient which received a very poor review in an english linux
magazine. Kolab already has a good kde client, and a good web-client in
the making (based on horde cvs).
So for now, Kolab looks like the more mature and for now more open
solution to me, but hey, as we said before, its about definitions now it
seems...
