i’ve been using groove for as long as you’ve been able to download the builds. i’ve found it adequately useful out-of-the-box for fostering lightweight collaboration and file sharing between work and home, but it desperately needs customized applications before any real uptake is going to occur. beyond what’s at the groove devzone, it’s disconcerting that i haven’t seen more “hello world” style articles that introduce the groove programming model to independent developers.
maybe using xml to configure groove is the start of more exposure:
“This article examines the use of XML to configure custom applications for Groove, a peer-to-peer groupware platform.”
