Internet & Networking I had been an avid user of Pine for almost five years. Recently, I decided to move to a greener posture. I dumped my good old Pine and settled with a graphical client. Although, sometime I miss the simple, fast, text based interface, the new relationship is shaping up to be an exciting one. We have our bad times, but overall I am happy with the switch.

Pine still #1

I've been using pine since 95. Every time I try one of these GUI clients I don't get it, why use a bit fat bloated GUI client to read TEXT messages. And for you newbies out there HTML does not belong in e-mail. Even on my windows workstations I'm still using PC-Pine. Combine pine with procmail and there is nothing better.
