Review: Good-bye Microsoft. Outlook is good but Evolution is better. Solid, stable and best of all -- FREE! Keep contacts, set appointments. This email package can set you free from Microsoft. Evolution for Windows is a incredibly versatile email / calendar / PIM application appearing as an Outlook replacement by every tech site. Evolution played a major role in allowing the Linux desktop to move into the enterprise by being able to connect to Microsoft Exchange Server and schedule/accept Microsoft Outlook Meetings.
There are a few things that this package helps with that differs from the official Evolution release. Here's a small list:
- This package contains an installer and not just a bunch of zip files of Evolution and its dependencies that the user is supposed to figure out and put together
- This package does not cause an MS-DOS Shell window to be open during the entire time that Evolution is being used
- This package sets the environment paths automatically, which again makes things manageable for you.
Note: Make sure you uninstall and completely remove all traces of previously installed versions.
