Munich standardizes on Kolab for its groupware

If you've been following the trials and tribulations of German city Munich's transition from Windows to Linux, you know they've moved 15,500 desktops onto Linux. They've now taken the next step and selected a standardized groupware solution for communication: Kolab. What, you were expecting Exchange Server?

I wonder what the base software requirements would be for "Joe Average Company" to consider using a Linux distribution in preference to Windows? Windows probably has a huge advantage due to inertia, and we've been promised the "year of Linux on the desktop" probably for the last 15 years now, but I'm finding that LibreOffice can do everything I'd want to do in Word or Excel (and probably PowerPoint as well) and if Kolab has mail/calendar functionality equivalent to Exchange, then I'm wondering if there's anything essential for general office use that's missing now? And Linux is cheaper than Windows too... :D
