gmail

so should i migrate over to gmail? i seem to be the world's last person still using outlook (and outlook 2000, at that!) here on my very own laptop for all my email/calendar needs, instead of having all my stuff float out on the internet somewhere. what're the pros and cons? the only difference i can think of is access to my email/calendar from anywhere i can get online, which makes fairly little difference to me right now, but could matter someday, i dunno.
really, i just don't want to have to get used to a new interface. i know how outlook does things and i have it all organized and set up how i want. but i feel like at some point i will have to switch over to more cloud computing type of shit, which i fundamentally don't really trust for no particular reason. i don't want my stuff out online somewhere, i want it right here on my computer where i can do what i want with it. this being more of an issue of control than privacy.
VERY IMPORTANT QUESTIONS HERE OH YES.
