Hi, it's a Microsoft product. The server-side component is called team foundation server (commonly abbreviated tfs).

It has two components: the application tier and the data tier.

  1. The application tier is a set of web services that provide access to tfs functionality, and a web portal and document repository facilitated by windows share-point services,

  2. Whereas the data tier is essentially a microsoft sql server 2005 standard installation that warehouses all the information for tfs.

Both tiers are required, but can be installed on the same or separate servers. Team foundation server contains one or more team projects, which consists of visual studio solutions, configuration files for team build and team load test agents, and a single sharepoint repository containing the pertinent documents for the project. It can be used as bug tracking tool, we can write test cases using tfs, we can publish the results of test cases in it, and we can use it as a source control repository.

I am torn between deploying Microsoft Exchange 2016 and Linux-based SMTP servers like sendmail, postfix, qmail and exim. Relative ease of installation and configuration is an important consideration factor.

Microsoft Exchange 2016, Domain Controller, and Active Directory are relatively easy to install and configure. Linux-based SMTP servers are extremely difficult to install and configure and of course, extremely time-consuming.

One of the features of Microsoft Exchange 2016 is that you can create additional folders on your Inbox in the server (server-side). Can Linux-based SMTP servers do that?

Does Exchange 2016 offer more user-friendly features or Linux-based SMTP servers?

Besides the above considerations, how about security? Traditionally, Linux is far more secure than Windows. Judging by security, Linux-based SMTP servers ought to have a higher percentage of the market share?

Finally, I can only use Windows Server 2016 Standard Evaluation Copy FREE for a period of 3 years MAXIMUM. But I can use Linux servers and Mail Transport Agents (MTA) FREE perpetually.

Please share your opinion?

I doubt Microsofts commitment. I clean so many Windows machines with 3rd party tools that Ms could buy and build in to protect the OS. The fact the malware, adware, search redirectors, trojans and root kits
got installed into the OS because Windows does not check any black lists or do any heuristics before installing shows a level of sloppiness that is not ok and not professional. Everything he was infected with was well known to Google and the OS could have blocked with a whitelist web service.

They have had a few decades to master protecting consumers and obviously they do not take it seriously.
