Mozilla Sunbird 0.5 Released

wysiwia All I'd like to do is (135 comments)

- managing my dates and tasks locally on my PC
- synchronize these with my smart phone
- possibly access dates and tasks of my family members (LAN)
- possibly access web calendars (e.g. Google calendar)

Can SeaMonkey/Lightning full fill these rather simple requirements?

wysiwia writes "DesktopLinux.com's 2006 Desktop Linux Market survey (http://www.desktoplinux.com/news/NS2580530877.htm l) got roughly 15,000 votes and some remarkable results. When looked at the results (http://www.desktoplinux.com/cgi-bin/survey/survey .cgi?view=archive&id=0821200617613) at the bottom, 60% still run Windows application somehow on Linux. This numbers matches with the in the OSDL survey (http://www.osdl.org/dtl/DTL_Survey_Report_Nov2005 .pdf) listed majority of Linux users still wishing for Windows applications. So what's wrong with free applications? Why do so many prefer none-free applications above free ones?"

wysiwia writes "Stuart Cohen, CEO of OSDL, said during an interview with vnunet.com (http://www.infomaticsonline.co.uk/vnunet/news/216 2570/microsoft-office-linux) at the LinuxWorld conference in San Francisco: Microsoft will release a version of Office to run on Linux within the "next couple of years". But when one reads the OSDL survey (http://www.osdl.org/dtl/DTL_Survey_Report_Nov2005 .pdf) about the "Top inhibitors of Linux desktop adoption" this "next couple of years" might mean quite a long time. This leads to the question, has Stuard Cohen read its own survey and how does he overcome these inhibitors so MS really will think about MSOffice for Linux."
