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.
