The Windows/IE only requirement is troublesome, but not that big of a deal. The vast majority of end-users that ask for 'site builder' solutions are Windows/IE users.gorilla said:SarcNBit , so what you think about this one then ?
The phpsuexec issue is a show stopper for us. Until that gets straightened out, we will only be able to run soho on a test server and will not continue to use it beyond the 90 day trial.
Overall I tend to be in the camp that says 'If you do not want to use it, do not use it. Do not yell at Netenberg for offering it'. I can understand those that are worried about the storage/bandwidth overhead of a Fantastico loaded with products that you do not wish to offer, but I do not share these concerns. My concerns are that Netenberg is going to get swamped with support issues related to a product that we will not be offering (at least until the phpsuexec issues get worked out), and that we are going to start seeing Fantastico become the 'messenger' of a new wave of 3rd party subscription required products. Besides the privacy concerns (how exactly does soholaunch validate fantastico authorized IPs? I do not remember seeing a notice that said that Netenberg would share my IP addresses with 3rd parties), I simply do not want to do business with outside companies in order to offer a full featured Fantastico. I would prefer to; pay that money directly to Netenberg, look to Netenberg for all support related issues and let Netenberg handle the back-end. That is what I would expect from a in-house developed product.
I also tend to think that the soho product overlaps with offerings from both cPanel and Netenberg itself. I understand you can limit your soho offering so it is not much to talk about, but we do not really need a package with the add-ons offered by soholaunch. I am sure some companies appreciate the complete offering, but we prefer to limit our 'site builder' package to more of a 'presence builder'.
