Is Zimbra the server totally distinct from Zimbra the PIM client?

I tested the latter and saw no reason to continue using it.  I had
been using evolution for accessing an exchange 2003 server and it was
fantastic at implementing almost all of the features through the OWA
protocols.  When my employer switched to exchange 2007, evolution fell
apart.  So I tried using the Zimbra client.  The code may be open
source, but the client was Yahoo-branded with prominent UI reminders.
It didn't give me a reason to prefer it over Outlook via Firefox.
