Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Suse Linux Openexchange

Posted by Peter Marklund on
I think it would be very nice if OpenACS would come with a setup and look and feel like Openexchange has out of the box.

I find the UI really impressive. Like Jeff said, the help links are nice, as are the privilege UI (you can choose private, public, individual) plus the fact that the pages load quickly.

Looking at their document management though I was a little disappointed as it wasn't possible (at least in my browser) to upload a file. What really kills the idea of using Openexchange groupware to me is that it isn't open source.

I think OpenACS is a great and powerful toolkit and it may primarily be a matter of giving it a slick and smart preconfigured UI like the one Suse is showing here to drive adoption.
