The GMail setup is what 999,999,999 out of 1,000,000,000 will pick and probably has picked when they setup up their account on an iOS device.
And I really like the move away from a Microsoft standard to a world industry standard like IMAP and CalDAV.
Thank you, Google! We don't need proprietary standards!
