Mozilla & Gecko clones "On her weblog, Mozilla Corporation CEO Mitchell Baker has announced that Mozilla Thunderbird is to move to a "new, separate organizational setting" as the Mozilla Foundation continues to focus ever more closely on Firefox. While the Mozilla Foundation supports a number of projects, its taxable subsidiary the Mozilla Corp. is responsible for only Firefox and Thunderbird. However, it has become increasingly clear that Firefox is the priority. The resources allocated to Firefox dwarf those allocated to Thunderbird and recent projects such as the initiative to improve Mozilla support exclude Thunderbird."

Not so bad, but so sad.

It's a shame that this is what they've come to. Instead of maybe growing as an organization and just gather more resources to continue the great work being done with Thunderbird. But who am I to say... I'm only an outsider who uses Thunderbird on a regular basis, but I suppose that it already does pretty much everything I need right now anyway... So until there is a feature that I'm really in dire need of I don't see what Thunderbird can't still be extremely useful. I hope this doesn't mean that security updates will come to a stop...

Maybe I just need to get use to using evolution instead, which does what I need as well. Ah well.
