"Well, in reply to #4, I think Novell has an opportunity to upgrade customers from Outlook and Exchange to some sort of Evolution/Thunderbird client and mail server Linux solution."

Many wouldn't consider this an "upgrade". Exchange and Outlook are a rather formidable combination.
Longtime business users of Outlook are not going to part with it for a lot of reasons other than e-mail. Outlook is almost a way of life for some users, and thats not going to change anytime soon.
