@derek iv always used mutt, but I'm just copying the unaboomer
@derek why the hell people make software with electron? When did this shit became default?
@arh: Not defending electron, but as a web developer personally, learning how to develop applications normally is somewhat difficult
With web development being as big as it is, it's often quite attractive to new people
@derek doesn't Thunderbird support all of those other features? A subscription of $8 to use those features seem way too expressive...
I wonder what other business model they can use...
That said, i hope it goes well for them.
@derek Forced to create an account on mailspring's servers even if you're not subscribing to pro features? Nah. I'll stick with Thunderbird.
@derek mailspring-libre is what everyone should be using
@derek Works great with Protonmail using the Protonbridge as well!
@derek I'm giving it a shot. At a glance the UX seems more in line with average user-expectations vs complexity of Thunderbird.
I get the whole "credit where credit is due" part in reference to Microsoft, but their interest in Linux I'm sure is self-interest -- we are still 2nd class or 3rd class citizens not having access to Primary Microsoft Software suchas: Native Office, Native Direct X, Native Windows Store, etc... so they have a long way to come to impress me or earn me as a consumer.
