UPDATE: We are offering to help Jotspot customers get out of a spot.
This is another great validation of the category we helped start. While Jot took their product in a different direction, focusing on SMBs, being a proprietary development platform and developing other apps, we chose to focus specifically on being the open, best-of-breed wiki. With a different path, Jot too has made good contributions for awareness of the wiki way.
Despite their official FAQ, Socialtext has recently reaped the benefits of the discontinuation of their Enterprise product, JotBox, with customer migrations to the Socialtext Appliance. Today Socialtext is the only proven wiki Appliance solution available in the market. Since Socialtext 2.0, I can decidedly say we have the simplest and easiest to use wiki in the market, whether Appliance, Hosted or Open Source.
This acquisition will further commoditize the low end of the market. Something we have encouraged with our Open Source versions of both Socialtext and SocialCalc.
Again, congrats, it is a real treat.
