Default Thunderbird

Trying to get away from the evil MS might seem like the impossible task. I've taken one step forward though and have done away with outlook express.

I installed Thunderbird by Mozilla and am using my gmail account instead of my hotmail account.

Is this a statement or is there a question here?
Thunderbird is my choice too. Works with GMAIL(global account).

Get the word out. Getting people off OExpress and IE will save a lot of PCs and reduce headaches. I tell all my friends to switch.

Most dont like it as it is often targeted for virus attacks.

Just go the extra mile and run a linux box. Use say kmail or evolution, the best part is people out there want to run tools/progs that do the same tasks only the'll make them with the features they want and try to fix bugs. Also check sourceforge.net for windows theres some really nice opensource progs comming up. Im only using firefox.. it think soon the mozilla devs will get huge and start to slide like every other company out there... im not putting all my eggs in one basket.
