Heya Jim

Hope all is well!

Many businesses run MS Exchange environments, more big companies than
small would be my guess.  The holdup for not moving workstations to
linux (and Macs too) is the lack of full Exchange compatibility.
Usually this means a full implementation of calendaring.  Email is
usually the lowest hanging fruit in the equation.

I would love to hear how your testing goes.
