Groove in a Nutshell
These past few chapters might have been a real eye-opener. So many new technologies came out this year, and they were all lumped under one grouping, and so it might be easy to miss the benefits of Groove. Chapter 4, "Groove Server 2007: Overview and Installation," introduced you to the necessary infrastructure that is already in place to allow you to communicate and collaborate with anyone, anywhere. That chapter explained the installation process, in case you decide there is a need for an in-house Groove environment.
Chapter 5, "Groove Server 2007: Configuration," moved forward into a discussion about the three main Groove servers: Manager, Relay, and Data Bridge. This information is helpful even if you decide to have your Groove services hosted by Microsoft, because you can still "manage" the environment through the Web console provided to you.
Finally, in this chapter, we have discussed the client. It's the most essential piece to the puzzle (at least from an end user's perspective). This chapter has shown you the behind-the-scenes side to the client, because although you can figure out a program pretty quickly, the deeper features take time to learn. This chapter should save you that time.
