Just to ask a few opinions maybe its poll time again, but if you would permit me could I ask a few opinions.
If the Zentyal Desktop a singular entity of is it a dynamic collection of modules that provide solutions to certain implementations.
I see samba as a solution for win clients. In the sphere of win clients and Win8 what do you think about the Win8 dual boot barrier debate?
Should we have a Zentyal desktop windows basis.
I am not saying it can't be "OS hetrogenious" but the infrastucture logic is MS based.
Should we have Zentyal desktop ubuntu basis. As with Landscape I can understand Ubuntu not wanting to chip at there core commercial offerings.
Then the thin client PXE RDP LTSP desktop.
Then sorry to spam again but Zentyal is looking a super system for "Cloud" solutions. I have been banging on about BOSSIE applications and have spent some time on a "suck it and see" demonstration on allllinux.co.uk.
There is always the question to where the desktop actually is nowadays? Or exactly what is the desktop?
I think that topic is quite prevalent at the moment. I know we all have a modus operandi, but it not always the same. I think that is one great plus point that Zentyal is extremely modular and diversity creates a stronger product and community.
This to me is an important ethos to be brought to the desktop and actually what is the desktop needs a granular approach at a proposed solution level. A desktop is there to be used, so what do you want to use it for. What systems, OS and what are your expectations?
I think it might be interesting for the developer at least to get some opinion. I guess specifics have been agreed as employment usually has a defined role. I am really glad the kerberos...SSO...Samba elements are on track?
To be honest I am beginning to feel that the desktop might not at all be the desktop. Then again many might think I am confusing the thread with the browser.
I am just going to start a new POLL and hope its throws some light. I am just going to bang some things off the top off my head plus submit or retract any entry.
I have left this one totally open. You can change or vote for several.
The above isn't concrete. Submit your opinion and I guess we can champion our opinions and see what the community thinks?
