Microsoft Outlook… and I'm done

For years I’ve been an Outlook user but today I’m done. I can’t take it anymore.

I use Thundbird at work – I’m on ubuntu so it was an inevitability. But my home PCs have always been dominated by MS Office, so Outlook was always the client of choice. But now, with the damn thing losing IMAP connections constantly, taking about a minute and a half to check 5 mailboxes, and freezing all-the-damn-time… nah, its not worth it, for the sake of my sanity I’ll move to Thunderbird.

The only problem now is to decide get myself a new calendar, task manger, contact manager, notes system, and find something to sync my Nokia contacts with. <sigh>

Oh yeah, and work out why Windows Explorer keeps breaking and restarting itself every 20 or so minutes.

Microsoft, what did I ever do to you?
