Has anyone seen Nuvvo? It's a hosted, AJAX-y "Web 2.0" fully-buzzword-compliant LMS/CMS.
I watched their demo screencast/flash tour and thought it was quite cool. I wasn't as impressed with their Moodle vs. Nuvvo document, which seemed designed to scare people into choosing their service.
I can see how their basic sales pitch has value (basically hosted vs. not-hosted) but it all seems very negative, with a slight hint of desperation. Though that's being charitable with the grey areas (e.g. PHP vs. Java arguments that could rage forever), and ignoring the occasional outright mistake, like claiming their Skype integration is a first about a year after Moodle had the same functionality (I think, never used it myself but it looks the same).
There's also the fact that the Open Source nature of Moodle means there are many hosting options available across the globe, if you want to go that way.
Hopefully they'll soon get over their exitement about choosing the latest fashionable technologies (do normal people, i.e. their target customers, know/care what AJAX, Web 2.0, Hibernate are?), and get enough confidence to not need to dubiously badmouth competitors, as some of their stuff does seem interesting particularly the user interface and business model.
edit: can anyone find any info on Nuvvo's big brother, the Savvica Enterprise LMS? It appears to be missing in action, at least after a brief Google, though it gets talked about a lot.
