From an interview with Bill Gates on Business Week Online:
„Well, when people want to look at business information, as far as I know, people use Excel to navigate business information. When people want to be notified about things and organize their communications, it’s the Microsoft e-mail client. Outlook and Outlook Express are the primary tools people are using there. „
I know many people working the way Bill Gates describes. And many of them turned very happy when we showed them „real“ collaboration software.
