  • These usage statistics have been derived from logins seen on the Netscape Calendar server and allow us to get a handle on the general proportion of the total user base that will have to change. This is not the use load expected in the new environment, but rather it gives us an idea of the retraining and potential re-equipping costs that maybe incurred by the change.
  • The calendar service has only ever been available via the cradle sync method. Corporate Sync was the only supported function. All other functions were an artifact of standards based configuration of the service, and the ingenuity of technical staff to make non-standard devices work by some means and effort.
