     Wait, what?  Ya really need to give a cite for these things for people, 
like me, who are caught off guard.  Now lemme mosey on over to the ol' 
Wikipedia...  Ah-ha, there's the link...


     Eh, for my part I see no problem.  It was Open Source before, it's Open 
Source now.  Nothing's really changed.  Larger projects have survived without 
the umbrella of a corporation.  If nothing else maybe it'll do some good and 
get the project to address some long standing warts of Thunderbird... like 
reply-to-list.  *sigh*

     As for Evolution the last time I tried it (and KMail, and Sylpheed-Claws) 
I was unable to make even a basic IMAPS connection.  No IMAPS, no client.
