I'm very sad to see it go, though not surprised. NR has been open source for years, but no one ever contributed besides Mike and it was in need of a rewrite. Now that it is EOL, several people on the Mac Enterprise list are talking about a rewrite project. I know Mike wont say it, so I'll say it for him...
WTF! Why did you wait all these years to start contributing!It's not like he just now made it open source. I've heard several times about others that have rewritten NR or NetRestore PHPServices to better fit their enviornment, but never shared with the community or with Mike. And to those I am flipping you the bird.
Thanks for the great tool Mike! It will be greatly missed.
