Ximian Evolution

2002-09-19 16:41:17+00 by TC 1 comments

Evolution Beta 1.2 just came out and I'm thinking about giving it a whirl. I'm actually a pretty big Office fan including Outlook but Ximian has put together some of the tightest desktop software in the linux world. Are there some Ximian simians out there that wish to evangelize or warn of stumbling points???

I think the last version of Evolution I worked with was 1.1. They've done a really good job of cloning Outlook, but then I don't like Outlook. (It's not just the security issues, I don't like the look and feel of it.) In the versions I worked with I thought there were several small details that needed to be worked on - nothing that made the app unusable but rather small annoyances:

There were several others, but it's been about three months since I've even seen Evolution so they're not coming easily to mind.

I did like the built-in RDF/RSS support/functionality though, even if I didn't know that's what it was at the time ;-)
