Default BES 5 interface

Please Login to Remove!

Do you know if there are any plans to reintroduce the rich client like from 4.1 because that was far more powerful than the web interface based on my experience so far.

Basic things like sorting columns and viewing information was far easier on the previous gui.

What do you think was the benefit to moving to a web based interface? Do you think it was easier to program etc ?

I haven't used BES 4.1 in so long I forget what the interface looks like. I don't think they will be going back. I remember not liking the web interface much when I first switched as well. However, once you get used to it, it isn't too bad. However some things are noticeably slower, like for example, switching address books for a user takes longer.
