    Can Plesk just make up their mind what they want to do, who they want to be?

    Having seen their plans at WHD.global a couple months ago it seems like they want to move away from small hosters and focus on the really big players, companies like GoDaddy, 123-reg, etc.

    Parallel's bought MB shortly after they bought Plesk is memory serves right. Plesk had already been severed from Parallels/Odin/whatever prior to this acquisition.

    Did. As in past tense. There's a reason for that.

    Plesk is very obtuse, they need to take a retreat to some remote mountain to re-design the entire scheme they are using and the one thing they have to do is to switch from PostFix to Exim I mean PostFix is a great CORPORATE email server but for web hosting is just not that great, corporate environment do not change much, however, web hosting is always changing.

    I think Plesk made out with the better end of that deal. I can't even recall when the last time a customer asked for that to be loaded.
