Zentyal represents at least 2 years wasted of professional endeavour. Chosen because of my favourite distro Ubuntu. I am currently having a major pissy fit as all that experience is basically been flushed down the loo. I have had so many run in with the council and commercial body of Zentyal that is doesn't matter that it doesn't work. It doesn't matter 2.2 the fall back is pulling in 3.0 repo items.
It doesn't matter there has a history of botches and errors. Modules such as LTSP have directives in the build script whilst they should be .conf scripts for fat clients to work. School boy stuff really.
What matters is the constant denial and the knowledge of this makes me bloody angry. Irrespective of any fixes I know I am never going to be able to trust this product. What a bloody waste of my time. I am swapping and I am not happy about it but there is no other choice. ClearOS and CentOS it will have to be.

You must be aware of this and the possible damage this denial could cause as currently the community council with blind allegiance are actually advising working concerns to swap to a system where there isn't a single module that works in entirety as the documentation states.

Its because of this I don't think it would be wise to trust Ubuntu for business critical platforms as reading between the lines this denial must be common place.

Great product! It's not a closed appliance. If something isn't there, it can be installed with apt-get. Zentyal 2.0 is an usual Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04.
