Evolution for Windows- an Outlook Replacement July 21, 2006Posted by Carthik in applications, news, office, ubuntu.
Evolution provides integrated mail, contact management and calendaring in one solid app. Sort of reminds one of Outlook on Windows, doesn’t it? Until now, there was no installer for Evolution in Windows. That just changed. Ubuntu users can now use their favourite mail+contacts+calender app in Windows too, if they have to at the office, or some other windows-only environment.
A new installer makes it possible to install Evolution on Windows, to replace MS Outlook. Evolution is an MS Exchange client and should work with Exchange servers. If it does not do that perfectly, file some bugs and someone will fix it for you for free. Most of the windows-porting work seems to have been done by Tor, whose update informs everyone of the new installer for Windows.
Will Evolution be to Outlook what Firefox is to Internet Explorer? Time will tell.
