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.
