While none is yet a drop-in replacement, a PC World article looks at ways that some administrators can get a cost advantage by switching.

I would like to see Evolution or KMail with the OpenChange connector (let's hope it's good) running natively on Windows & Mac. For IT to even entertain the idea, there needs to be a drop-in replacement for Outlook - even Outlook 2001 for Mac would have made a better argument than Entourage, Thunderbird or Mail.app.

Hopefully the GTK+ and QT4/KDE porting efforts will deliver something better than we have now. I'd hope it would encourage Linux adoption too.

(Windows clients can use Outlook).

Lots of FOSS solutions out there, for both the groupware server and the clients.
