Microsoft worker writes love letter to own application

Mac Mojo : a love letter to Entourage

A Microsoftie in the MacBU has crafted the above article on MSDN, where she describes her love for the PIM creme-de-la-creme (cough) Entourage.

It would be nice if the MacBU would stop patting themselves on the back for the useless My Day application and spend their time on application compatibility in a mixed environment with Outlook and Entourage.

Sadly though, they aren’t doing much in that area.

Evolution 2.10.1 (Feisty Fawn) looks do-able

So finally, it looks like the Evolution team is sitting up and paying attention about their buggy code. Evolution 2.10.1 on Feisty Fawn actually works without issue so far. It’s laggy, but it works even against our monster of a mail system. I’m impressed.

GNOME Mobile & Embedded Initiative… huh?

GNOME Mobile & Embedded Initiative

So this was GNOME’s big announcement today. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this. I suppose that if GNOME is getting the industry behind their desktop initiative enough to get some wider open source adoption, that’s a good thing. However, I have mixed feelings whenever I read about the GNOME folks getting their fingers in other pies when they still release some seriously buggy shit. I often feel that they should step back, hunker down, and really spend some quality time with their source before opening up other rabbit holes.

Yes, I’d feel this way about KDE too.

I have a Feisty ISO waiting on my server at home, so I’ll be loading it up in a VM to check out Feisty’s improvements. But why in a VM you say? Geez man – when you try to load the “powerful” and “awesome” Evolution, you find yourself running… screaming… back to something more reliable. I’ll stick with it in a VM until they improve.

Yes, I know I can load other email clients. But I want to use what they intend for me to use. If they’re going to distribute that crap, they need to make it work.

But no… guess they’ll be spending time on those mobile devices now. – Whale Beaches Self at N.Y. Oil Depot Dock, Dies Suddenly in Front of Crowd – Science News | Current Articles – Whale Beaches Self at N.Y. Oil Depot Dock, Dies Suddenly in Front of Crowd – Science News | Current Articles
