Re: [K12OSN] Ximian / Evolution or Imp/Horde shared calendar experience?

Correct! Evolution = outlook in general terms of "Colaboration" The only time you need to buy into the Ximian conduit is if you want Evolution to contact/utilize an exchange server. In other words, Evolution/conduit/exchange Server = outlook/exchange Server. The reason you pay Ximain is because they have to pay microsoft for the "PROPRIETARY" parts they use in the conduit. In other words a non GPL'd piece of software. :(

Dear All,

With k12ltsp installed our office users would like to take advantage of the
calendar and desktop e-mail rather than our standard (and slower seeming)
Web-based e-mail (Imp/Horde). I will only let a few know about it, but I'd like
them to be able to share their calendars. Has anyone already investigated this
possibility and, if so, can you point me to something other than the ximian.com
corporate pages, which seem to require you to buy outlook?

Not correct AFAIK. You *can* share calendar info with Outlook via Exchange Server, but sharing Evolution-to-Evolution is part of the GPL deal with no cost. Read the Ximian web site more carefully.

Alternatives to Evo for what you want include any of the project
management software, such as PhProjekt, Mr Project, Phpgroupware, etc -
all GPL. These have calendar sharing and more - usually via a web
browser interface.  HTH.
