... is really rather separate to great integration features. :-) You *can*
do these things without necessitating the Outlook suite interface (at least
for all users -- I do agree that some are going to be more comfortable with
the old-school UI for a while => see Kontact, but keep your glasses on).
Ultimately, if the integration works well, and each user interface is finely
optimised for its purpose (mail, calendar, contacts), surely we can make
that experience better than the "all in one box" experience, and improve the
lives of our poor, cubicle-bound users? :-)
