    Canonical should acquire Resara.

    I am thinking that Canonical should acquire Resara.

    Rasara was a company that used Samba 4 to make a small to medium business server on top of Ubuntu that was compatible with Windows (Looked to Windows like AD) Macs and Linux.

    This company is winding down and open sourced everything. I think Ubuntu would do good to have something like this to get further into the small business market. Esp now that MS got rid of its home server and its dedicated small business server.

    I am in the IT business and a lot of times I want to offer Ubuntu or the likes for small business file sharing but I can't because its not easy enough to manage, directory services are not there etc.

    Resara has all this and it works well on top of Ubuntu as their base. With Ubuntu putting in the R and D and then selling it on Dell or HP hardware etc, I think it would be a hit.

    Let me know what you think?

    Have they expressed interest in the company?

    On another note, it looks like I'm back to ATI.

    I think they'd be better off acquiring Zentyal, assuming they wanted to offer that kind of product at all.

    So, no. Currently Canonical need only a more reliable way to sustain itself; and users to support it. (buy from software center)

    So why buy them when you can just use the source code in your own products?

    Mr. Shuttleworth said no such thing.
    That's what she said.
