OEone Discontinues HomeBase DESKTOP

While they had said earlier that development was being frozen for a time, and they are still selling the full distribution HomeBase SUITE, I hate to see this truly-different desktop vanish. Any chance they could open-source the full desktop without killing the Homebase ANYWHERE (server storage space) revenue stream?"

#7 I agree

A decent calendar/email integration with todos, email followup actions with a deadline, arbitrary classification etc. would be essential to make Mozilla/TB successful in companies. However it seems that developers are not very interested in this marked segment and - especially with FB/TB - target the "simple apps for simple minds" market segment. Something that MS already does and always will do better, IMHO.
