Alex Evans posted the following blog entry yesterday regarding the work being done on the “GMS Replacement”. Right now, it looks like the GroupWise Mobility Connector will be available in only one configuration: a 64bit SLES 11 add-on, using PostgreSQL as the backend database.
You might have seen our recent poll regarding 64bit hardware usage. How does this change your responses (if at all)? Are you ready for 64bit SLES 11 now?
For myself, this is not an issue. I can put up a 64bit SLES 11 server without too much hardship.

I suspect there are many Windows GMS sites out there who were hoping to not go the Linux route just yet!
What say ye??
Just spoke to an old fashioned customer yesterday who plans to replace 200 mobile users from GMS and he was not very pleased as I mentioned it will only run on Linux…
