Are you saying you think that Novell will go out of business?
I think before they go out of business they will decide
not to put much effort (money) into improving Evolution.
Are you saying you think that all the hackers that work on Evolution will suddenly vanish?
I think the amount of effort going into Evolution will
diminish to the point where other applications are
clearly better as mail clients (MUAs).
Essentially I think of Evolution as a commercial product,
not a community product, regardless of price/licensing,
and that eventually no company will be willing/able to fund
enough to keep it competitive.
