Dont rely on our Health Department to do anything sensible.

We are currently building a hospital in a city of 1.6 million people - which is to be the 3rd most expensive building in the world. Its more expensive than the Burj Khalifa.
Even worse - we are doing it as a public private partnership. So instead of simply borrowing money (in an age where money is almost free) at a government level, we are paying a private enterprise to do that, and we essentially lease it off them for the next 30 years. They make a massive profit, we incur all the costs.

It does, but its buggy, incomplete, and not suited to a business. We seriously tried using it because Thunderbird as a mail client with IMAP servers worked so much better for us than Exchange. However, the calendar is just not up to it. Sharing calendars, shared calendars such as rooms, its just difficult, buggy, incomplete.
If, the calendars were fixed up to properly support caldav, and in a way that would suit business, Thunderbird could be a rival to Outlook. But its not - Sogo and the like is trying, but when we last tried a couple of years ago, it just wasnt ready.
We jumped shipped to Office 365. Calendar wise we never looked back - however with emails, I still miss the speed and efficiency of our globally distributed Cyrus IMAP servers and Thunderbird - they left Outlook for dead.
