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.

This guy hasn't used Thunderbird

Briefly looked over the article, and it looks like that this guy has never used or spent more than a few hours with Mozilla Thunderbird. I can perfectly understand his frustrations if he's a Mac Mail user (which appears to be the case), but overall I see no problem with the way most "good" email clients are designed.
