    does anyone care if thunderbird goes away?

    since news broke that Mozilla is looking to find a new home for Thunderbird so it can focus on Firefox. do you care if Thunderbird goes away?

    i have been a loyal Thunderbird user for several years now and would hate to see anything happen to this program.

    Not until it can be considered "outdated" and/or abandoned ( as in no more extensions being created/updated etc ).

    That might be anywhere from a few weeks to several months.

    I use Thunderbird and it's perfect just the way it is.
    Try the beautiful Enlightenment17 distro OzOS. | Easy way to install Enlightenment17 from CVS.
    Thanks Rui Pai for all you work intergrating this beautiful Desktop Shell with Ubuntu.

    Apparently it isn't going away anyway:

    I think it has too many users to just go away, and I don't think Mozilla want to see it go away. They are looking at how they can improve the Thunderbird project.

    I do! I love ThunderBird. Of course at the same time I really like FireFox and I want it to always be free. So if they have to dump something to keep it that way I'm for it.

    The other thing is that I'm sure that someone somewere will pick-up the source code and keep it up. Plus it works fine and would last a long time withought support.

    I heard that the Mozilla team had taken over Eudora and were looking to make it open source.

    I actually really like Thunderbird. I don't use Firefox at all though.
