Thunderbird 3

Filed under: Google, Mozilla — tuxicity @ 7:19 pm

The Thunderbird3 package has arrived in Archlinux, and makes Thunderbird2 instantly obsolete.

When I started Thunderbird3 it asked me 3 (three) questions.
  1. How do you want your name displayed
  2. Whats your E-Mail adress
  3. Whats the password, with a tic box for remembering password.

After that Thunderbird probed and detected my Gmail settings, including imap, ssl and what not

And thats all I had to do to set up my (Gmail) account.
Thunderbird3 rocks! , use it.

Why Google Office Matters And Other Microsoft Competitors Don’t

Filed under: Google — tuxicity @ 8:29 am

Why? They lack critical mass even though they may be innovative. Zoho? Nope. ThinkFree? Interesting concept but not enough mass. Meanwhile none of the alternatives are perfect.
