I know what makes them *un*popular: my supervisor's secretary attempting to
send me contacts via an Exchange server. The combination is a joke, which
spits at standardised protocols and makes an attempt at yet another
lockin^TM. Eventually, the secretary is forced to copy and paste
field-by-field onto word and then send me an RTF file, saved in word as an
E-mail attachment. Now, if only she had used VCF... same goes for exchanges
of appointment data.
Thanks for the chuckle, dude.
