[Linux-aus] NOVELL: Connector for Exchange Server Under Open Source License

    Connector for Microsoft* Exchange Server will be integrated into
    EvolutionTM 2.0 and made available as open source, beginning
    today with the current Connector 1.4.

Anotgher obstacle bites the dust. And it's a good omen for Novell 
understanding how to unleash the unwashed hordes onto their 
competitors: don't hog the IP and try to work it yourselves, but rather 
release early and release often.

I foresee the Kontact/KMail people and a number of other FOSS email and 
calendaring projects doing a code transplant in the coming days.

Cheers; Leon
