Groupware News

Two articles which caught my interest in recent days from CNET News about the groupware segment of the collaboration software space... (yes, I do know that Groupware preceded "collaboration" by near on two decades and yes that is the way I classify it. semantics, indeed.)

Firstly - Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt in the back-and-forth between Microsoft and IBM in the Exchange/Notes battleground. What's amazing to me, the interested third-party ISV, is that Notes and Domino have managed to stick around for so long now in the face of Microsoft's huge advantage in installed base of Windows Server. This is a testament to the quality of IBM's (née Lotus') solution.

And secondly - a bit of people-shuffling news about the Open Source competition to the two giants, Open-XChange.
