Ximian is set to release an updated version of their Linux desktop next week. Saw numerous articles on it and it sounds like it will be real nice. I am suprised that they did not do a beta period publically (like they do with Evolution). I hope they had a very good test team whomever they were, because I know I have found TONS of bugs in Evolution, especially the kind you only get by letting real life users use the product rather than just letting a select group of developers use it.

Being that I was a software developer for a lfew years (and still play one from time to time), I know the many strange things that users can do. As the saying goes, you make the software idiot proof and they go and make bigger idiots. If this is something that is supposed to be aimed at the Windows users of today, well, there is definitely a large base of idiots out there.
