    Default License & Source?

    Interesting project!

    The article in the new york times implies that ox/io is open source. I couldn't find the source or the license on the FAQ or the website. Details?

    Hi,

    please see the legal page of the Open-Xchange website for detailed information about the licenses used for this software
    http://www.open-xchange.com/en/legal-notice

    There are several ways to get Open-Xchange Server, the most convenient one might be precompiled software packages for a vast amount of Linux distributions:

    If you're interested in the source code, check this out:

    Default Just OX.IO stuff?

    Is it possible to an instance of the ox.io service running without running all of the OpenXchange software, or is it all one big thing?

    Also, can you clarify what license ox.io is under? The legal notice page (http://www.open-xchange.com/en/legal-notice) doesn't make that clear.

    Hi,

    ox.io is just an Open-Xchange Server 6 hosted somewhere in a datacenter. It's nothing special or unique, everyone can set up such a system at home or work. Furthermore its a demo system to try out the latest and greatest version of OX, it is not intended to be some productive service. The license terms for Open-Xchange Server also apply to the installation at ox.io.

    Have a nice day!
