I had spent some time on Interchange several weeks ago and encountered obsticle after obsticle until I finally threw my hands up and shelved it.

All I know of it is what I have seen in the demos. On preliminary inspection, it looks impressive, but I have yet to make a successful install. I may look into it again if only to satisfy the lingering questions of it's viability I still have. For now, I will reserve judgement.

One thought which I cannot help to ponder is that Interchange is put out by Redhat. Redhat's angle is ease of installation, yet in my experience with Interchange so far, it is not an easy install. Granted the documentation and reviews I have seen are upfront that it has a steep learning curve... at what point are the benefits of Interchange outweighed by it's steep learning curve?

For me, it is currently a time consideration. As long as I can satify my minimal requirements and keep away from security pitfalls, I'll take the least line of resistance for now. Who knows, by the time I am ready to consider taking Interchange off the proverbial shelf, there will be something better, or I will have advanced far enough to write something myself.
