Graphics, User Interfaces "We're able to produce absolutely stunning websites and mobile apps with great interaction design. Interfaces that are smooth and fun and let us understand information without even trying. But when it comes to email clients, we get a bit of a boring feeling, like using an old piece of software from 10 years ago. I think we can do better. So let's do that." Great ideas and beautiful design by Tobias van Schneider, but why he would forcefully shoehorn this clearly digital UI into Mac OS X is beyond me. It has no place there. This just screams Metro.

Thunderbird has been taking care of all my needs very well, and I have 5 (five) email addresses. I could get rid of some of them, but I find it crazy that they are stopping the development of Thunderbird.
OS X Mail wasn't working that well, I wouldn't get mails from my google or hotmail accounts.
I don't know how I could replace email with Facebook.
As a matter of fact, I could live perfectly well without Facebook, and sometimes I have deleted my account.
I don't touch other social networks at all. What is wrong with meeting people in real life or phoning them?
Certain things don't need to change. A letter was a letter 50 years ago and it is still a letter. Only difference, you can write it with a computer and with a word processor.
Similarly, an email is still an email.
