"I started working with Thunderbird again with its beta 3 release earlier this year and was immediately impressed. The 2008-vintage versions of Thunderbird were just sad, but this time around, Mozilla got it right. Thunderbird's 3.0 release deserves any e-mail user's attention.

"I say this after working with Thunderbird on two test systems. Both systems were Dell Inspiron 530S PC with a 2.2-GHz Intel Pentium E2200 dual-core processor with an 800-MHz front-side bus under the hood. Both machines had 4GBs of RAM, a 500GB SATA (Serial ATA) drive, and an Integrated Intel 3100 GMA (Graphics Media Accelerator) chip set. On the first, I was running Windows XP SP3, and on the second, I was running MEPIS Linux 8.0. Yes, that's right: Thunderbird, like Firefox, runs on all popular desktop systems (including Mac OS X) and in almost 50 different languages."
