How can I get the G-mail look and feel through an exchange server?

this question pops up periodically, and I have not been able to find any recent information about being able to do this. I have a small office that uses an exchange server. We are not in a position to ditch exchange, but I am willing to jump through some hoops to get the Gmail-like threading interface with the exchange server.
I am NOT interested in making changes to Outlook to get the generic feel. Even when following every tip online, it isn't even in the same ballpark. Further, I would like to avoid forwarding my mail to any Google server. It is important that we keep our own data.
I am interested in purchasing some sort of Google Apps device or similar solution that will work with the Exchange system and give me an authentic gmail interface. For example, would it be possible to forward the exchange server (mail.business.com) to the Google Apps device (mail2.business.com) for a seamless dual-device environment?
In the alternative, I am happy to jump ship to some email view other than Outlook, if it is similar enough to Gmail's interface.
