12. Great Programs That Aren’t on the CD > 12.2. Evolution: An Outlook Work-Ali...

Evolution: An Outlook Work-Alike

Kontact is KDE’s version of Microsoft’s Outlook personal information manager, and Evolution is GNOME’s. Though Evolution does bear a strong resemblance to Outlook in appearance (Figure 12-3), it has many advanced features that make it a very useful program in its own right. One such feature is called the Novell Connector, which allows a user to connect Evolution to a Microsoft Exchange Server so that calendars and contacts can be shared with Outlook users. Unlike Kontact, which is a parent program designed to hold several child programs like KMail and KOrganizer, Evolution was designed from the beginning to be a single application with calendar and contact features. As a result, it feels a little more polished, and you won’t encounter any odd behavior when you switch between components.
