May I ask a possibly stupid question:

Having Evolution and Thunderbird available, why continue to enhance KMail? Is it that much better?

The biggest problem with desktop Linux adoption, in my mind, is the lack of standard deskop apps. How many browsers are there from whcih to choose? Four? Five? Same email or audio. Just pick a good one and go with it.

Just a thought...
