Well, you might want to read Mitch Kapor's weblog on this issue.
I personally agree that OSA/Chandler missed the "release early and often" part of Linus' advice - they took too long to get something even installable out, and they are moving way to slow on usable features. That seems to have been Kapor's history since 1-2-3; I am not aware of any other really usable product he sheparded himself (Notes came from the outside).
OTOH, a good PIM is a very hard thing to design, as evidenced by the fact that we are still using MS Outlook, Notes, and even text files for the purpose. Maybe it really does take this long to think through the problems.
