I think the hangout went quite smooth. There was even some kind of structure in the hangout…
I realy like the idea to have next hangout with developers. I don’t know if there already are ‘community devs’ but it should be interesting to hear some technical insights.
There were a few things that were very clear: Stefan mentioned NS might not be aimed at his business. Small businesses that do need a server, just need something small, easy to install, easy to maintain. Nothing fancy, just doing anything a SBS server needs to do. As soon you add modules, configuration, even when completely guided through a webinterface, might become more difficult. Maybe a 2nd, “advanced” page on the admin webinterface would be the place for more difficult features. Then a simple server for small businesses can do with just the basic networking services.
The second thing I am really happy about is meeting Adrian. He is also an education guy and is looking for the perfect (opensource) school server. I guess in the future we will probably talk a lot with each other and discuss how to come to that perfect school server.
I have been in this community now for 1 week and being here feels like a warm bath. Thank you all for this welcome and I hope to help out here for a long time.
