After being a huge fan of Outlook for many years, I am ready to see if replacing Outlook with Gmail is truly possible, without losing my favorite features. With friends and colleagues swearing that once I become accustomed to using Gmail that I will never go back, it seems worth a try.
Actually, they have been trying to convince me to change over for a few years now. The truth is, I was just plain chicken to give it a try.
Of course only time will tell, but after just a few hours of experimenting with all of the options, I have to admit, it is much better than I might have expected.
My biggest concerns involved my need for extreme organization with email. Between filters and labels though, this concern has proved to be unfounded. At the moment I am spending time looking for extensions plugins that may improve my experience with Gmail even further.
One program at time, I may completely eliminate my need for Microsoft products all together.
What about you?
Have you begun to eliminate your dependence on Microsoft? Was it a difficult addiction to break?
Or, are you hopelessly stuck spending hundreds of dollars on their programs year after year?
