LinuxPlanet.com notes the fiercely Open Source Ximian is working on a proprietary project that will allow its Evolution email client to interact with Microsoft Exchange. "Ximian, Inc. made an announcement today that will no doubt turn heads, especially among people who've been
watching Miguel de Icaza over the years since he first kicked off the GNOME Project, ostensibly to wrest the future
Linux desktop out of the hands of KDE, which was saddled with the controversy over its use of TrollTech's Qt
toolkit." BusinessWire has the press release about Evolution 1.0.
