Blue Iris Versus Milestone?

We have a client giving BI a hard look and I am looking for specifics on where it may fall short to something like Milestone.

The client is a management company with multiple apartment communities, so the required features are minimal.

I have heard things like the software is a resource hog, and its a joke. But no real specifics. I can't tell the client "Its a joke". He currently took over a community running 30 cameras on Blue Iris and is monitoring the server, and he says the resources are fine.


Anyone know of any specifics where it falls short?
