Cisco migrates to their own product


IBM'ers are a sensitive lot and a number have taken notice of the tweets coming from Cisco (and others) that Cisco is turning off Sametime tomorrow. To which I reply with a resounding... "So what?”. They acquired Jabber over a year ago to replace/augment their own presence & IM capabilities and compete with Sametime. Webex Connect/Jabber could be the worst thing since Microsoft Vista... but I'd still expect them to use it. It is theirs.
