Thunderbird with added calendar: Outlook alternative?


Some people i talked to about Thunderbird said they were not going to abandon Outlook, as Outlook also includes a calendar. Well, wait no more :-)! An Indian company decided to take the Thunderbird code and add some things, amongst which is a calendar. Ah, the joyce of open source!

Spicebird does more: it integrates functions, so you can easily create an appointment via e-mail. And chat and email are integrated (easily chat with email-contacts). It also packs a rss-reader and a to-do-list/task-manager. Applets allow you to add more functions. The developers are planning functions like blogging by using the email-function, a content management system and a connector for Exchange. Give it a try!
