Companies are not rolling out chat, news and compose to (m)any of their employees. And if they are, they are using the best-in-class options that exist on each platform, not Moz.

Lotus, Microsoft and others have a juggernaut on mail servers making the mail client superfluous for the vast majority of companies.

So if a company determined that the Moz browser fit their needs, they would need to figure out how to strip out all the garbage to push it out to their staff.

The suite thing was dumb on so many levels.
