Apparently they didn't find something that covers their needs, and since they're capable of doing it, they decided to fix the problem themselves. Which is great!

Linux does lack something resembling MS Outlook, it would be great if CERN developed a good open-source MS Outlook alternative (especially the collaborative PIM/scheduler part). There are good open source replacements for the whole MS Office lineup, but not for MS Outlook.
