Goodbye Outlook

I removed my shortcut to Outlook from my taskbar on my Windows machine today. It felt really good.

Our organization, Cru, is in the process of moving from Exchange to google apps. The list of reasons I need a computer running windows just got shorter. I think I’m down to 2 programs I still need that are win only and we may see changes that will make it possible to leave those behind as well soon. Then again – there is Netflix. Ah well – I may have one windows machine for a while but not needing it to get my full email client is super nice.

This also makes picking up a little chrome book much more doable. They are cheap enough that it might make sense just for taking to meetings. If I get more out of it, that’s all bonus.

Well – that’s it. Big day.
