[quote]Ximian on Monday released Evolution 1.0, a clone of Microsoft Outlook that has support for e-mail, contact lists and calendars. [/quote]

Hmmm. I could make the joke that the system on the user's desk is actually more stable than the exchange server running the email, but on a brighter side, this could open up the Unix market to more users who are intidimated by it.

Are there any other Unix aps that do this?

I think "clone" a bit of copy writer's excess, similar features might be closer. Haven't tried it lately, could be good thing for linux if it works well.

I saw that, it looks real nice. Defintely a win for *nix overall. Think its one of a kinda though, there was some company that was looking to be a supplier of I guess for lack of a better term *nix shareware software ...want to say it was Gentoo Linux but I think I'm confusing the linux distro with another company. I'll check for it later and post it if I find the company.

As for others cloning MS style apps, I really wish there was a way we could get around it, but *sigh* it appears to be the only way to get people to pay attention. Mind you I just want more users so Manf.s have to pay attention to *nix as a consumer force so we get drivers or specs released.

It is very complete organizer plus email client and has a calendar and an address book built in. I like it, but don't use it much.
