Mac OS X Since my Cube could not run Leopard, and I did not have any other Macs, I was unable to delve into Leopard right away. Apple NL was kind enough to fix this problem for us, by generously loaning me a brand new MacBook with Leopard installed so I could review it for OSNews. Read on for the findings.

I think this stems from some sort of elitist holdover from some core geeks who believe email should remain plain text only


Well, then there is a lot of these elitists out there, including me and almost all the people I exchange e-mails with (no, we're not living in anybody's mother's basement). I always set every and each e-mail to be displayed as plain text and if it's unreadable, I won't place any effort to read it. I just don't care what they have to say if they can't say it in text, only mixed with useless tags and flashy and colored junk. On the extremely rare occasions I'm still curious about it, I read it and begin my reply with telling the sender to use plain text when sending e-mail to me, they can use their tacky html decorations for the rest of the poor fellas they send e-mail to.

Simply not using HTML doesn't make you elitist. Hating it without valid reason does.

Obviously you don't use email for work then, or in any professional sense. If I got a response email like that from a company I was patronizing, I would cancel their service immediately.

On the contrary.

Sorry, but this is falls into my definition of elitist ;) On the other hand, I have to congratulate you, since you seem to have so many clients that canceling one of them for such a reason wouldn't hurt your businness.
