a plugin for Evolution would be just as logical, or maybe even more
logical to build for Kolab, since kolab's specs are open, whereas the
plugin for OGo is the Exchange plugin, which is, at best, a
screenscraper-like solution to get data from Exchange-webaccess
server-like servers.
Mozilla's calendar is pretty cool, but also pretty unfinished, and so,
no real OGo client exists in the totally free world.
If OOo's project takes off, and Evolution or Mozilla gets open/complete
OGo implementations, then, and only then, can OGo be considered a full
product.
