I'm not suggesting that people at Internode are Luddites.  My only complaint is that the article in question gushes forth with praise for how wonderful and shiny Exchange is (because it works with the iPhone), without giving any detail at all about what FOSS options they'd previously pursued (which didn't work with the iPhone).

And at present, it sticks in my mind that they got these cool washed-in-unicorn-tears Apple products, and in order to feed their craving to use them, they threw out all their previous work and got in Exchange simply so they could croon over their Jesus phones.
