Good-Bye, Outlook: Evolution Comes to Windows
I like being free to use the computer, operating system, and application that are the best for the job I'm doing. I use Macs and Linux machines along with Windows PCs, although I've mostly given up using Microsoft Office and Internet Explorer. Still, I remained a prisoner of Microsoft Outlook, because no other Windows program provided the same killer combination of e-mail, calendar, task, and contact management. However, Novell's Evolution--long a Linux-only Outlook competitor--is wending its way to Windows. Though still pre-beta software at this writing, Evolution for Windows can already function well as an alternative to Outlook.
