Evolution Stable on Ubuntu At Last – (How about tackling MS Office doc compatibility next)

June 8, 2010

Fistly I have to state that I have only ever used Evolution on Ubuntu. For months I had to kill Evolution a couple of times a day because it just froze up. Finally in Lucid Lynx this is no longer the case! I dont know who fixed it (and dont care), all that matters is that it is working properly now as far as I am concerned.

This is a majour step in getting Ubuntu ready for the real world in my opinion. There is however one majour stumbling block left before Ubuntu can take the place of MS Windows for the average office jock. MS doc/docx compatibility in Open Office needs majour work. I put this before the door of the Ubuntu team and not the Open Office team because I think the Ubuntu team has the resources and hopefully the will power to get it right.

Come on guys tackle this one for us! Please!?!?
