Hi,

Today I just got Zimbra working on our company server and was generally pleased. It does 90% of what we need, and I think its a great product with great support for even greater price.

I have one question (or suggestion ???), since I am fluent in programming. Why Zimbra is written in Java and not PHP? Tomcat is slow and resource-hungry, even over local 100mbit net login process takes 20 - 30 seconds, despite hosting on 2.8 GHz P4 PC with fast 3ware RAID. On the other hand, compiled (with opcode cache) PHP programs are very very snappy. I am not a fan of any technology whatsoever, decision must be made on the basis of purposfulnes and not personal taste. Please do not consider as I am throwing stones, just curious....
