Clinging to Outlook, Only 25% of Employees Willing to Use Yahoo Mail

At this point in your life, Outlook may be familiar, which we can often confuse with productive or well designed.

How many times have you been faced with a change in software or hardware, and just wish you can go back to the old way?

The next sentence is just all sorts of awesome:

Certainly, we can admire the application for its survival, an anachronism of the now defunct 90s PC era, a pre-web program written at a time when NT Server terrorized the data center landscape with the confidence of a T-Rex born to yuppie dinosaur parents who fully bought into the illusion of their son’s utter uniqueness because the big-mouthed, tiny-armed monster infant could mimic the gestures of The Itsy-Bitsy Pterodactyl. There was a similar outcry when we moved away from Outlook’s suite-mates in the Microsoft Office dreadnaught. But whether it’s familiarity, laziness or simple stubbornness dressed in a cloak of Ayn Randian Objectivism, the time has come to move on, commrade.

Wow.
