I'm glad to see that phpGroupWare has made lots of progress since I
last looked at its online demo last November. Congratulations!
Two major problems:
- PHP is merely a server-side language
- Recent versions of PHP aren't GPL-compatible
What I want to build is a decentralized system (or system framework) that
leaves as much control as possible with the user. I would like the GNU GLUE
client to have a rich (and therefore native) user interface and a local data
store (like Lotus Notes). Preferably, the GNU GLUE client should come as a
single executable file for each supported operating system, ready-to-run,
requiring no installation at all, so that it is easy for everybody to use GLUE.
Put differently, GNU GLUE will not rely on a centrally controlled corporate
environment to run. GLUE is supposed to be "user-based" software.
