SME Server Software

SCO Evangelist John Terpstra talks about the SME market needs on the server side: “File and Print serving, Web and FTP proxy, Firewalling, VPN technology, Electronic Mail (in Volution Messaging Server), and back-end SQL serving data for Microsoft Access and Microsoft Excel applications. We’re also providing copies of OpenOffice for Windows and Linux, Mozilla for Windows and Linux, VNC for remote management, Ethereal (network diagnostic tools such as Ethereal.”

He makes an interesting point which we need to address: “It may be inflamatory of me to say so, but some of these tools run better on Windows than they do on Linux. And when people see these Open Source tools running on Windows and compare them with the tools that are available on Windows, they see a natural superiority in terms of functionality.”
