Kontact: How does it compare to the competition?
With all of this talk about KDE 4.5 lately, I thought I should take a moment to mention a tool that hasn’t had much (or any) talk here on Ghacks. That tool is Kontact. But what is Kontact? Kontact is the KDE groupware suite that includes more tools than your standard suite, has a lot of pluses, and a few minuses. But even with its minuses, Kontact is a spot-on tool for anyone needing a solid groupware suite to keep them as organized as possible.
In this article I will introduce you to Kontact and help you decide if it is ready to usurp your current tool.
Here’s what Kontact includes:
* Summary page: Shows the summary for everything you have upcoming.
* Mail: Your email client.
* Contacts: Your contacts.
* Calendar: Your personal calendar (integrates with the Akonadi server)
* To-do list: Your tasks.
* Feeds: RSS feeds.
