So one of the linux companies released Evolution 1.0, their groupware mail client thingy recently.

After seeing one of my coworkers playing with it a bit I went ahead and installed it.

It's frightenly like outlook. In most ways it's a little better, though outlook had a couple of extra features (like specifying rules for repeating events.)

Though evolution there's this nifty vfolder function that allows you to look at views of your mail.

I'm not sure why it disturbes me that it's just so much like outlook. I guess it's 'cause I missed parts of outlook, but liked the idea of being able to read my email via an ssh window which you can't do with complex gui applications.

I should go get some sleep.

I've never used Outlook - just KMail, Netscape, pine and (ages ago) Eudora. Is Evolution really that practical, or is it another of those bloated apps that hogs your RAM and slows anything less than a PIII to a crawl? I already have Netscape and Star Office for that!
