Hi,

if you ever wanted to get your Ximian Evolution connected to a MS Exchange Server, you had to get a plug-in, which had been nor freeware not GPL. But now Novell decided to give it free as GPL (News (http://lwn.net/Articles/84494/)) and the best thing is, it is allready avalaible in theGnome-CVS (http://cvs.gnome.org/viewcvs/evolution-exchange/) Ok, this is the 1.5 release and not yet stable, but a nice preview, what to come next.
That's a big stept in the right direction :cool:

I wonder how many enterprises will switch from Windows with this Exchange feature.

I know enterprise software changes, and especially operating system changes, take a long time.

Is there any other major corporate application that doesn't have a free solution?
