Lync vs Open Fire = forum

I've tried Lync, I've tried Open Fire.  Lync was so complicated to setup, I made a forum just to keep up with the notes.  I got 4 people on it LOL, didn't even intend on it.  One day while getting frustrated with Lync, I ran across an old Hak5 episode that was talking about Open Fire.  I gave it a try and I was hooked.


Needless to say, I've added a board on my Lync server 2010 forum for alternative communication servers.  Open Fire, and Spark are all I have listed.  If anyone would like to post any helpful information, tips, tricks on there, I would really appreciate it.


Like I said, the forum is new, not really anyone on there, but If someone does come looking, I would like to help promote the Open Fire project.

    I didn't even managed to setup Lync It's just a giant PITA, like it is often with MS products.. Though it has nice integration features with other MS products, but it is just too complex.
