"With all of this talk about KDE 4.5 lately, I thought I should
take a moment to mention a tool that hasn't had much (or any) talk
here on Ghacks. That tool is Kontact. But what is Kontact? Kontact
is the KDE groupware suite that includes more tools than your
standard suite, has a lot of pluses, and a few minuses. But even
with its minuses, Kontact is a spot-on tool for anyone needing a
solid groupware suite to keep them as organized as possible.
"In this article I will introduce you to Kontact and help you
decide if it is ready to usurp your current tool.
"If you are using KDE 4 you will likely have Kontact installed.
To find out go click on Start > Applications > Office and see
if it is listed. You might also notice that the constituent parts
of Kontact are also listed. That is because you can start each
component individually and not have to fire up the who shebang. But
let's assume you do want to fire up the whole kit."
