Because Thunderbird hurts even more (IMHO). I had a brief look at 
Thunderbird recently, and to me it looks worse than it did the last time 
I tried it (some years ago). Unfortunately there is no way to keep the 
good old kmail instead of the newfangled kmail2, at least until kmail2 
is usable. :( Therefore I suppose I'll not upgrade my desktop and stay 
with 10.04 for now.

OTOH, I can't complain about the rest of 12.04 - no real problems so far 
on the other machines where I have it installed already.
