Back from a week in London, it's about time I post something, right? Well, today I want to talk about Thunderbird 5, a recent update to the popular Email client from Mozilla that I believe is worth talking about.
I first tried Thunderbird 5 on my new PCLinuxOS 2011.6 installation. The Mozilla Email client comes installed in the default image, so I just had to upgrade to get it. To be totally honest, I don't think I would have tried it otherwise, for I personally gravitate towards minimalistic distro configurations that don't use heavy local clients for services that I can otherwise get through a browser. Fortunately, though, PCLinuxOS gave me the opportunity to test the latest Thunderbird, and I am glad it went out that way... It really is worth the try!
