First of all... wasn't there a story here the other day about a stand-alone composer?

Secondly... why don't they strip the browser and mail/news from the monolithic app and bundle that with the *birds? Once the *birds have all the browser and mail/news functionality, there really won't be anything missing. As time goes by, other components can be stripped out of the monolithic app until there is only one thing left. It's all about UI and presentation, and the details can easily be hidden from the naive user.
