Never used Thunderbird until Windows 7 came out and that was because I had forgotten about no Outlook in it. I'm like, WTH, where's the mail. Never used Outlook (ISP) mail much anyway.

After installing Thunderbird I then remembered it's called Windows Mail, but by then it was to late.

Thunderbird isn't a bad e-mail program. This latest version seems to start up quicker, finally!

Thunderbird is okay. it was better with the older version. They have bloated it up with the glassy UI. The reason why I still stick with it is because I still have emails for years ago and don't want to bother exporting it to another program.

I just logged onto Neowin after a very long time and boy am I happy to see all these software updates.

I never really liked Thunderbird's UI, let's see how this one fares.

I like this accelerated release schedule!

It really works fine when Firefox is not my primary browser, as it means Thunderbird is updated more often too.

So your saying its lightweight then?

No, you may think of it as something useful, but not very attractive. When you get near it you suddenly realize how unpleasant it is.
