[xubuntu-users] Seamonkey--worthy of consideration in Xubuntu?

Following the discussion on Replacing Gimp i was wondering if anyone 
uses Seamonkey.

I stopped using it after Netscape 7.2 when i did a pc rebuild and for 
no reason switched to Firefox and TB - when renamed Seamonkey i haven't 
given it a look. Someone recently reminded me 'why not give it a look 
and i did'.

I have to say i really like it. It puts together what i need; It's got 
some themes (Walnut i just love) and couldn't live without 
'It'sAllText', email is lighter than Thunderbird while retaining useful 
features. Firefox and TB have been developed to such an extent that i 
don't want all the sophistication at the expense of speed. Obviously a 
developer/IT Consultant would but not that many choose Xubuntu.

Regarding 'Replacing Gimp' the issue to some extent was CD space. 
Considering Xubuntu is meant for lighter/faster use or older PC i was 
wondering what folk thought and maybe this could be fed back to 
developers. I actually have a new machine but xubuntu is my choice 
mainly based on the minimal flavour.
