Following all the postings about the recent Mozilla TB announcement I
missing a discussion about the "Big Picture" Mozilla has in mind.
First let me state: I'm a Thunderbird fan, working with 'it' since the
Netscape days, also in one of the big international IT companies
(instead of using OL!). So I hope we'll have a bright future with a
Mozilla mail product.
Things are changing, communication has more facets these days, the
internet communication methods offer much more possibilities. Has
Thunderbird changed / evolved to meet those requirements?
We have seen Raindrop some times ago. Visit those project pages today:
"This project is considered inactive."
I remember there have been other discussions to enhance Thunderbird for
newer communications methods. Any news on that? Not really?
Can we expect a move to an implementation of the other methods of
communications into Firefox (see Raindrop)? How will react Mozilla to
support the Social Connections ? Will they leave it others (Android)?
How about Boot2Gecko? Will it offer mail, Social Connections, etc ?
So, what is Mozillas "Big Picture", the discussion behind the scene? My
feeling: the statement was not the complete story!
