        <title>Kolab Groupware Flavors</title>
        <para>
            Kolab Groupware comes in two major flavors:
        </para>
        <para>
            <orderedlist>
                <listitem>
                    <formalpara id="form-Kolab_Groupware_Flavors-Kolab_Vanilla">
                        <title>Kolab (<emphasis>Vanilla</emphasis>)</title>
                        <para>
                            The vanilla flavor of Kolab is ideally suited for general purpose Groupware systems in which no specialist features are required.
                        </para>

                    </formalpara>

                </listitem>
                <listitem>
                    <formalpara id="form-Kolab_Groupware_Flavors-Hosted_Kolab">
                        <title>Hosted Kolab</title>
                        <para>
                            Hosted Kolab is the flavor targeted specifically at hosting providers (ISP, ASP, Cloud) offering Kolab Groupware environments to multiple customers, possibly through multiple resellers.
                        </para>

                    </formalpara>

                </listitem>

            </orderedlist>

        </para>
        <para>
            Furthermore, the Kolab software are divided in a community version, and an enterprise version. The community version naturally moves forward a little faster and is subject to change a lot more so then the enterprise version. The community version of a product series will only become available as an enterprise version after thorough Quality Assurance and Certification of partner products.
