|Just to add some more speculation to the fire...|
I did some research about MAI, ArticiaS & products that use them, and the most intresting company that i encountered was Inguard.
(http://www.inguard.com/index_en.html), although it's hard to tell just how
well their products run, they do seem to be into servers, and these servers use
the ArticiaS (Also, the company is part of "Atum Business Group", just like MAI is)
Also, it seems impossible to find any public post whatsoever related to possible problems with articiaS on the net that didn't come from Bill Buck, and if Inguard's products truly work the way they claim i'd be very suprised that there *are* problems with it.
However, feel free to correct me if i'm wrong :)
PS: I will continue my digging about these issue's, these need to be resolved ASAP for once & for all
