Thursday April 1st, 2004

Kevin Gerich wrote in to tell us that Pinstripe is new default theme for Mozilla Thunderbird on Mac OS X. Pinstripe, a collaboration between Kevin and Stephen Horlander, is designed to fit in with the Aqua graphical style and is already the default Mozilla Firefox OS X theme. Mac users can try out Pinstripe in the latest Thunderbird nightly.

Nope Macs are easier to use for novices but if you have lots of serious development work to do the limitations of the UI weights you down. I would rather have a little more technically challenging system that promises significantly more development functionality. Just my personal preference. Even if I could afford the fancy machines I still wouldn't buy one since development sofware is always lagging behind on the Mac. Take Java for example. The linux and PC binaries of the runtime environment are always available before apple has packaged up their binaries. I just don't like that lag time of a couple weeks or even months.
