I've read elsewhere that the only two paid full-time developers for Thunderbird have just walked. Presumably they know more than we do and it can't be pretty.
EOL anyone? Or maybe it will be picked up by a responsible owner and not go the way of Eudora?
I still use Netscape 7.2 and it fills all my needs- it has been on the back burner for a few years now. Actually I know over 10 people that still use this version of Netscape and 4 are geeks... Thunderbird will hold its own, I'm sure.
From what I read in other news, it may be getting bundled with the OpenOffice project to compete with M$ Office Suite.
there is always seamonkey...browser and integrated email.
Is that the code is still there. It might get used in other projects, it might get picked up by volunteers, it might get picked apart and bits used in other projects... or it might die. But at least the options are there. Consider, on the other hand the fate of... for example the OS/2 code, sitting on a shelf doing nothing for all these years...
Like any other software Thunderbird has both strengths and weakinesses. Personally, I think it is worth furthering and refining. I am optimistic. I sure as heck would hate to be forced to use Outhouse or Outhouse Express!
