Re: [PLUG] The One True OS, migrating to

Not a flame sincerely interested and wish to be educated.

Actually I'll bite on this one. Case study here since you brought it up Steven. You need to migrate 6000 users from a propriety nix mail server that is now defunct. You need to include all of the options I mentioned and they want to move all of the users to LDAP.  What would you use to do this? What OSS would you use to support all of the requirements? How long will it take you to deploy it? How would you integrate it all? I'll open this up to everyone because I honestly would like to have my opinion changed.

You can e-mail me off the list if this offends anyone.

I can see the logic in paying for some software that doesn't have
equivalent free alternatives. I have a hard time seeing paying $12000
for what is effectively integration work. But, each to their own.
