  • Which is better, Outlook or G Suite?

    Preston Gralla has a detailed comparison of Outlook and Gmail-Calendar-Contacts in Computerworld.

    He digs into many nooks and crannies and comes to the conclusion:

    If simplicity is your goal, choose Gmail. If, on the other hand, you and your team need every bell and whistle possible, you’ll want Outlook.

    Which certainly matches my expectations.

    I used Outlook from the very beginning – wrote books about Outlook 97, 98, 2000, 2003, 2007 – and finally gave up on using the big O during the days of Outlook 2007. I moved to Gmail, Google Calendar and Contacts around then, and haven’t looked back. I’m a simple kind of guy, of course.

    Have you used both? (I mean, really used them?) What do you think?
