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.

2. I find any web "interface" that loads up my CPU more than 5% (average), completely perverse. It's just email, for phuq's sake!!
3. Mutt [...]

I guess that for a long time, for most of email history, Mutt would be at least similarly heavy on relative resources...

And let's not kid ourselves, it's just non-viable as an alternative, most people don't and don't want to use text UI.

PS. Generally, Mutt sucks! :p
