I run an instance of it, even started switching from Horde to
Roundcube a while back.

I like it alot better than any of the alternatives, especially when it
comes to building off of it. Horde was just a pain in the neck more
than anything else (disclaimer:  could have been the system design I
was given and had to work with, but it still left a foul taste....)

I was able to do most of the same stuff with roundcube with a ton less
work, time and complication.

Hope that helps. Have fun.
