I have used KDEs PIM suite in the past and it just feels wrong to me and
it looks out of place on my GNOME desktop. I can't get it to fit with my
natural workflow, call me strange but I like the GNOME way of doing
things. I'm sure it's fine if you are used to KDE though, I just haven't
used KDE as my desktop in a number of years. Besides installing half of
KDE for a mailer seems a bit silly when basically Evolution is fine for
my needs, despite its flaws.
The PIM framework they are working on for KDE4 looks very interesting
though, I'll be interested in seeing how that pans out for them.
