    Default evolution vs thunderbird

    I was using Thunderbird for email. Now using gnome desktop on opensuse 11.
    Can someone please explain what the difference/ advantages between evolution and thunderbird are?
    I only use email for home use.

    So why not use Thunderbird under Gnome?

    I am but I thought evolution would work better with the calendar that comes with gnome.

    You can get Lightning, a calendar add-on for Thunderbird. You can even get another add-on to connect it up to Google calendar.

    I need the calendar app for reminders so I guess it needs to be running all the time.
