Evolution vs Kontact - Part 2 - Kontact & Conclusion

Filed under
Software

Welcome back to Part 2 of this series - pitting GNOME’s Evolution Personal Information Manager (PIM) suite against KDE’s Kontact.

Kontact

Kontact’s interface has some similarities with that of Evolution. One of the most striking differences is the fact that in many areas there are three sidebars.

On the far left you have a sidebar for switching between the different sub-applications - Mail, Contacts and the like, and then in Mail, you’ll have another sidebar for your mailboxes and then a main area split into a message list and the preview pane.

The addition of this triple-vertical-pane approach for me makes the interface a lot more cluttered and less easy to pick up straight away.
Certainly, though, it feels less like an absolute copy of Outlook than Evolution.

Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
