"What are Ximian's expectations and hopes for GNOME?"
"Miguel: We want to see GNOME succeed in providing an
alternative to the MS Windows platform. Basically, we want to bring
the power of free software to the mainstream users. "
"Evolution is Ximian's new groupware application for GNOME
featuring, among other things, integrated calendaring, mail,
contact information management and Palm-synchronization. What are
the plans for support of proprietary mail and group-ware systems
like Exchange and Notes? For instance do you plan on giving
evolution the ability to read/write Lotus .nsf files?"
"Miguel: We are currently on the planning and research phases to
support Notes and Exchange. The protocol to talk to Exchange is not
widely available, so some amount of extensive tcpdump research
action is going to be taking place soon. We realize that we will
need to provide a solution that would allow people to inter-operate
in an Exchange and Notes environments, and we will be taking steps
in the direction of fixing this issue."
