Exchange isn't part of an operating system - it is an application
that tightly integrates email, scheduling, contacts, and tasks.
For example if you want to schedule a meeting or conference call
you can view all the participant's schedules to pick a good time
and when you send the meeting request it automatically shows up
in the recipients calendar and can have an automatic alarm notification
associated (which you might also sync to a pda).  A feature difficult
to duplicate with less integrated applications is that if you send
a meeting request or an update that shifts the time, the calendar
event is modified even if you haven't opened that email yet. This
can be critical for people who work in distributed groups and have
to arrange and adjust times to call in to conference bridges together.
