How is Outlook integrated into Windows anymore than Kontact is
integrated into KDE? I've used Outlook (on and off ) for years and I
don't recall how it's "integrated" any differently than Kontact (or
Evolution in the case of GNOME).

I've never bothered with Plaxo because it's useless to me unless I pay
for it (and I'm not willing to). I can't recall any other plugins I've
ever used for Outlook right now. I know they exist, but I've never come
across any that interested me (unless I was missing a spam filter that
actually works - Outlook's sucks. But come to think of it, Outlook
sucks, period).

I'd file a bug report (wishlist) with KDE....

879,683 x 1000 (unimaginable)?

Or 879,683 (hard for this guy -with *only* 40-50K- to fathom)?

I've never used an OS I didn't (dis)like.
