This week in the BUZZ we cover the GroupWise Market Survey Report, LinuxWorld and other news. Check it out.

Have you heard?...The GroupWise Market Research Survey Report is now available. Over 1,100 companies were surveyed and the results have been published. You can download the whitepaper at The report shows that nearly two thirds of GroupWise Administrators are preparing to upgrade to GroupWise 7 within the first six months of shipping of the product. The report also shows that nearly 75% of GroupWise administrators use Cool Solutions to receive their information about GroupWise

Have you heard?...LinuxWorld is just around the corner. August 9th-11th in San Francisco. If you get a chance, be sure to come by and say hi and support our GroupWise vendors. Omni and GWAVA will both be there showing off their stuff. GWAVA's Redline will montior all your GroupWise Agents on Linux, NetWare and Windows and Omni has their very cool Novell Linux Desktop Multiplier. A must have for deploying Linux to large numbers of desktops.

Also in the news

Have you heard?...New Zealand's Education Minister has announced that all publicly funded schools will now be able to use Novell GroupWise in addition to many other Novell products. Read the article at

Have you heard?...GroupWise Special Interest Groups (GW-Sig) can provide you a resource in your area to talk to other GroupWise administrators. Jack Weinstein is President of GW-SIG just outside of Philadelphia. Their SIG is one of the longest running SIG for GroupWise. They were established in 1996 and have been talking about GroupWise ever since. If you are in the Philadelphia area be sure to stop by August 9th for their next meeting. Or if you would like to form a GW-SIG in your area, contact Jack directly and he will help you get up and running. For more information visit

Just for fun...I like it when GroupWise users stand up and be counted. The following article doesn't have anything to do with GroupWise directly but the author of the article made a point of saying they use GroupWise. Take a look at the article and drop them a comment thanking them for running GroupWise. I already have.
