E.g. I think this https://micreabog.wordpress.com/2016/05/01/akonadi-resource-for-microsoft-exchange-web-services-ews/ is a great effort ! :-)
Not that I think everybody should use a Exchange server, but as long as kdepim 
does not support that mostly feature-complete and reliably, in many settings 
kdepim is simply out of the game.

A recent news item said that Windows now dropped below 90 % :
http://venturebeat.com/2016/05/01/windows-7-drops-under-50-market-share-xp-falls-below-10/
...but desktop Linux has a whopping 1.5% (according to them).
So, IMO, if we want our software to become more relevant, trying to push users 
to full FLOSS systems (from OS over apps over online services) is maybe not 
the best way.
