As Daniel said, We are using it!! We have people from all parts of the company using both Novell Teaming and Novell Teaming + Conferencing.....developers, Support, Sales, Project Management, Marketing and Product Management.
We have conducted the entire T+C BETA using the product - each BETA call has been conducted using the Conferencing piece. We have workspaces across geographies and have included people from around the company. There have been issues and things to work out, of course and like most software packages - there will probably be things after we ship - but we have had some very good feedback from our BETA sites and those who are actually using it to do real work - not just test it.
We are always open to feedback and appreciate your input. Hopefully you will be able to take a good look at what it can do and that you will find value in its feature set, its open source strategy and its competitive advantage. Now I sound like a marketing guy - Sorry :)
By the way - Ken is still here and also a big proponent of T+C :)

Not sure who else has seen this product yet in their labs (if you have, please feel free to confirm or deny this), but from what we saw of it last week, I beg of Novell - please, please do not ship this product.
We've been waiting ages and ages for something that works without MS Active Directory, to shut up everyone who clamors for SharePoint. This new Icecore thing you call T+C, isn't it.
I ask that Novell try to implement it first, and put everyone in the company on it. Don't assign a team of developers to make it look pretty, because your customers probably don't all have teams of developers waiting to make portals look pretty. Just deploy it and make people use it. See what that feedback nets you, and go from there, but for the love of all things holy, don't make us your beta testers again.
Where's Ken Muir when you need him... :-(
