Have you heard?...Only 8% of the legacy Exchange install base is expected to migrate this year to Exchange 2003 even though support will be terminated for Exchange 5.5 in December but 62% of the GroupWise install base is expected to migrate to GroupWise 7 within the next six months.
88% of all GroupWise installations of any size have two or fewer full-time GroupWise Administrators.
75% of GroupWise users get their GroupWise information through Cool Solutions.

Have you heard?...LinuxWorld is next week. 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 August, the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) formerly known as LawNet, is holding their 28th annual Educational Conference in Phoenix, AZ on August 22-25. I will be speaking on integrating 3rd party technologies with Novell GroupWise. Visit their vendor list from last year and let me know which technology partners you would like to see supporting GroupWise. https://conference.iltanet.org/exhibitors.asp
Also in the news
WordPerfect Mail in the news. Many of you who support and work with GroupWise remember when it was a WordPerfect product called WordPerfect Office. Now, Corel has announcement WordPerfect Mail, a new email client to compete with Outlook. It doesn't have any ties to the original WordPerfect Mail that is the predecessor to GroupWise, but it is fun to see the name pop up again.
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. http://www.net4now.com/isp_news/news_article.asp?News_ID=3094
