That is one case where I think OSX did it right. Email, Address Book, and
Calendar are all integrated but still totally separate applications on OSX.
It's modular integration. KDE-PIM has an option to be in all one window
like Outlook or Evolution, or to run separately, but I don't like it. It
feels too cluttered. Evolution puts it all in one window and well, screw
you if you only want to use one of them. I wanted to use the calendar. I
like that it's integrated and the appointments show in the GNOME panel
dropdown calendar, but no, you have to use it for email too. You can't even
set up a calendar in it without giving it your email credentials, and that's
just stupid. I was intending to try to do something about the horrible
monolithic version of integration Evolution uses over the summer, but now I
don't think my minimal C skills are up to doing that alone. The
Evolution-Data-Server is probably just fine, but the way the GUI is handled
is all wrong.
