    The good thing with .net you can let the students access it on any machine and over the internet. It really depends on what the school wants.

    I replaced Eclipse 2 with .NET and found it relatively easy going. Switching from IE7 to a browser with faster rendering (FF 3.5 would be great) seemed to make a big difference on the client end. Our library staff used Athlon 64 X2 machines with 1GB ram and Windows XP and it ran fine.

    On the server side, upgrading the database went without a hitch and we never noticed excessive load. That said, Eclipse 2 is also solid and if you have less demanding needs it's worth a look too.

    Hmm, that's probably not a bad idea (trying FF 3.5). I'd probably get shot if anyone found out I'd installed Firefox on a CC3 network but as in most cases it'd only be a single machine I can't see it'd cause any issue.
    Will have a play later today I think

    Just a thought, but how much longer are MLS planning to support Eclipse 2?

    That may make the decision for you.

    Just had eclipse.net installed. we had heritage before.

    I had pre-prepared the server with 2008std , sql2005 and making sure IIS was working. Took about 10mins for them to install the server software and a bit longer to sort out the clients and the sims interface and one minor issue that mls remoted in and fixed themselves.

    pretty impressively straightforward.
