Thanks for the detailed feedback and comments on this. Like you’ve noted we, as a company, have put work into tasks and task management before and it is an area we continue to give thought to as there is still improvement to make. I will pass this feedback and the comments on to the right folks for more consideration. If I can share anything substantive back, I will. Thanks again for the feedback and engagement.Ludger A.

Well, I think, buying Wunderlist wouldn't be the worst thing. After all, Microsoft knows how to make a full fledged, feature rich, ugly and convoluted task management tool, Office Outlook is just that, what Microsoft needs is a way to create a modern, lightweight, yet flexible task manager, people really want to use.
And Wunderlist just released their API and even announced integration with Sunrise Calendar and OneNote. So, who knows...
The other question is: Is Microsoft capable of integrating their recently bought companies without ripping their soul out...
