Outlook Love

From Scott Rosenberg's Links & Comment:

"Outlook is a joke. No sane computer user today should use it. If your company makes you use it, go to your CEO and explain how much time and money his company is losing by using it."

Umm, duh :)

But, at the same time, continuing to use Windows is still pretty insane to me too. I've used Linux on my desktop for about 8 years now and have had no problems at all interacting with any files that anyone from Windows sends me. Also, with things like OpenOffice, I can create my own Powerpoint, Word, Excel docs and they work fine on Windows.

I definitely do not understand people continuing to use Windows at all. With the release of Ximian's Desktop 2, the interface is as easy if not easier to navigate than Windows and also has many other features. The stability of Linux is also WAY above that of Microsoft products, so BSODs go away completely (well, except on the screensaver that shows all the different ways of systems crashing), so you don't have to spend time every day rebooting your system, etc.

I don't know, I would think with everything that has happened in the last week between Sobig and MSBlast, more people would be looking VERY seriously at a switch to Linux right now instead of continuing to deal with inferior products from MS.
