Thunderbird 0.3: The Eagle has landed
I finally shifted to Mozilla Thunderbird on both Linux and Windows with the 0.3 release. Thunderbird 0.3 is a major improvement in performance v/s the earlier kludged versions where writing a large email gave you sudden flashbacks of teletypes. I was using Outlook (on Windows) and Evolution (on Linux). Thunderbird isn't equal yet in terms of sheer speed but this is why I shifted.
