We are talking Unix here (industrial strenght tools, focus on doing things
right, etc) or are we talking "Microsoft-based Professional Software" here
(the "MAIL FROM: a at b.c" crowd)?
Not that Thunderbird is that bad. It is *not*. But it really saddens me to
see more and more developers get caught on the "pretty is more important
than functionality" mentality. This has nothing to do with Thunderbird.
