OGo is quite nasty, one effectively needs to replace half of objc (and
half as in "half the package" ...). From a developer's perspective OGo
chose some funny infrastructure.

As far as I checked at least for Outlook all open source projects need
a "connector" that is not free. E.g. there is no open source solution
to connect Outlook to a group calendar. But you may argue that since
Outlook itself is neither open source, nor free, that this is just an
extension of the restrictions you have to put up anyway with Outlook.

I don't know if there are any good open source mail/calendaring
clients for Windows at the league of evolution/outlook.

In my case it's only one Windows user and he will be always connected
to the net. So a good Web-UI would suffice. The Linux user group would
have to be more flexible, so evolution is giving the possible
solutions.
