    Once I've lost ~2Hrs trying to get it working, but I had severe issues with calendar integration, so I gave up. Evolution works really well, though.

    Ah, I thought I found the GNOME Calls repository here https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/calls and it seems to say in the README that it has an oFono backend.

    Imagine if it had support for RCS (the successor to SMS and MMS) too.

    Oh, this looks interesting.

    Yeah and the client needs to be sandboxed so it safe against hackers and exploits.

    Plus, we all have a serious and a newsletter/onlineshopping registering email account. Maybe even a garbage one for dubious stuff and the spam that comes with it. Being able to merge them all while still distinguishing them is a must. No merged inbox in Geary, no go.

Hell even Microsoft can't be bothered to not make Outlook the worse software I've ever used.)

    I think this is mostly courtesy of purism. Good move tough.
