I'm sure you guys hear this opening line a lot but, I'm new to linux and have a couple of questions...
I work for a company that provides IT support to many different companies. We are basically a 100% windows oriented company only inplenting and supporting basic unix/linux solutions. I have gotten my feet wet in the open source world and i'm starting to get interested.
Many of our clients rely on Exchange 2000/2003 for email, calender and contact information. I have not researched a product for linux that compares to it... is there a product that has the features, security, scalability and managabililty of Exchange with using outlook as a client?
Active directory alternative? There is a very recent thread about this on this board, but there was only a ZENworks/novell solution as a alternative.
Terminal server/citrix? i would have no idea how linux can ease the cost on this besides on the client side, having thin clients with linux run a citrix client on them while connecting to a fully licenced windows server with terminal server application mode/and or citrix installed.
I know that Linux provides great solutions for web, ftp, file sharing, backup and database..
If there was a better or equivilent alternative to these things, i do not see why we wouldn't start implenting Linux solutions....
