Exchange is bad news...

I recall many the overnight lying on the floor next to a client's Exchange server throwing tech-fu commands to "fix" the Exchange store and in the end the M$ support line said the dreaded 'restore from backup' which is bad because important emails would be gone. I really wish I would have not bought into the Small Business Server lie and would have installed Samba and Postfix instead. I does not seem that MicroSlop has changed or beefed up their Exchange code.

Linux

Running any computers that are not Linux based completely debases their position

They want an expensive Mac because "Dat's wut we used to..." and I am sure those machines I see that are not Apple computers are Winblows based. Crap, Microsoft is greedy evil central and Apple is catching up rapidly with their new litigate instead of innovate stance. To show they are not full of sh** they should run open source Linux systems. I GUARANTEE you that if the group states they are willing to wipe Winblows from every computer and go 100% freedom based open source an army of local open source computer experts who are truly interested in freedom will descend on the scene and totally transform their cobbled system into a top notch IT system. I have been running Linux only since 2003 and finding ways to do what I need with only open source tools. If I lived there I would have come down in person already and offered!
