“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.” - Steve Jobs

Comcast picks Zimbra for online e-mail – Huge Vote for Open Source & AJAX RIAs

Comcast’s use of Zimbra for their messaging and collaboration center is a huge vote of confidence in both Open Source Software and RIAs.

I’m not sure what it really means globally. It could just be a fluke of 1 company doing everything right, but if I was looking at RIAs for the consumer space and Open Source Software for the enterprise, I would definitely take note and possible raise a few stock prices.

Congratulations Zimbra for finding the right business sell for your services on your OSS platform. And thank you for always being a great inspiration to myself and my peers for what AJAX-based RIAs can do, in real world high-concurrency environments.

Everyone else, especially enterprise software makers, should take notice to this and try to learn from Zimbra. I sorta wish I was a Comcast customer.
