However, people don't want calendaring, they want Outlook. Offer a
solution which doesn't allow Outlook to work ``like it should'' and
you risk learning more about Exchange than you wanted to. I guess
Outlook might start to talk CalDAV, but I personally doubt it: it
would undercut Microsoft's Exchange business which is very lucrative
for them. OCS has an Outlook plugin I suspect for this very reason:
it avoids management refusing to accept a solution which doesn't do
what they see as the right thing: the rest of us use the OCS Linux/
Solaris/Windows/OSX native clients or the web front end, all of which
work very nicely.
Your management won't regard CalDAV as a standard, they think Outlook
is a standard. And ``not as seamless'' is a key admission.
