For those of you who build on Linux, which mail server do you use?

Debian defaults to Exim for its mail server. Can it handle a robust e-commerce site with some Customer Relationship Management behind the scenes? In other words does Exim scale or should I use another mail server?

Also has anyone used the Boron theme or the Mobile JQuery Theme?

Beyond Drush 6

Hey Drupalers, all y'all use drush, right?

Have you tried to update it lately? Can you get beyond drush 6.0 without going down a serious rabbit hole?

If you're used to using drush, and want to dabble in Drupal 8, you gotta get beyond drush 6.

Is there anybody out there that's done that and is still alive to tell about it, and if so, would you come to a Nashville Drupaler meeting and tell us about it, so we can all learn?

Getting back in the game

Couldn't get into my old account so I created a new one.

I've got a couple of new projects coming up. One will be a video site for a local Air Personality.
So I'm looking into the the best media players in Drupal 7. Is HTML5 players ready for primetime yet? I may also build a file upload/submit area as the client works for Friends of the Festival and needs some way to get media from bands.

Second project is for my cousin's daughter. She has started an anti bullying group for her mid/high school.
