Evolution belongs in the bitbucket.
This is pretty scary. Switching people off email clients like
this is a big problem. People get really attached to their MUAs
for lots of reasons, not in the least being that their mail
archives can't be easily moved from client to client.
Guys, Red Hat has been pushing Evo for a _long_ time now. It has
to stay behind their choices, not force millions of users to switch
at a drop of a hat (pun intended :)).
This is a lot more serious than switching web browsers or other
apps. Too many people will get affected, and rightfully pissed
at RH. Silly excuses that you couldn't hire people to work on it
will not fly.
I'm really surprised that folks at RH throw around such scenarios
without thinking a bit about consequences. How can enterprises trust
you with any technological guidance/decision when you are willing to
do things that would cost them untold millions without even blinking?
