From the Mintoaur project page <http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/minotaur/> :

"Minotaur will have the same UI as the mozilla mailnews client.

"Thunderbird is an effort by the Phoenix team to create a stand alone mailnews client with a new UI, one that uses the new toolkit and follows the UI practices of Phoenix. But Thunderbird will be built from Minotaur."

In the past, it has been reported in several places (including here) that Minotaur and Thunderbird are the same thing but they're not. Sorry about that. It wasn't an intentional attempt to mislead. :-)
