we are running IC since 2 years without any downtime and we have really no
open questions - the only open questions I know are silly

that is true - but reading the code helps!

And did you ever read the documentation of systems like websphere or
vignette? They wrote tons of documentation and you need minimum 6 month to
be productive. Then you are happy with the IC core documentation.

maybe the problem is that you compare IC with "shops", for us it is a
professional application server (and I know Microsoft Commerce Server,
Websphere, Vignette, Notes, ...)
