Pinstripe New Default Theme for Mozilla Thunderbird on Mac OS X

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.

I'm sorry but you are just ignorant. The "Mac GUI is for idiots, *hur**hur*" is an pathetic, old fallacy that PC users used to use to make themselves feel superior, and it shows your total lack any any knowledge about the Mac. Perhaps though you would like to enlighten me with some specific instances of where Mac's UI is "weighing you down".

I did find it pretty funny you chose Java to attack Apple on the "Development Software" front since.

1)The current non-beta version on Mac is the SAME as for PC and Linux (1.4.2 ). Yes there was some lag time at the very beginning, but it was out much faster than it took the previous version. And more than likely Java 1.5 will have an even shorter lag time. It's not like any serious Java programmer is going to require the latest version for their use, or require that their users/customers use it in that early time frame so its a moot point.

Since we're talking Java and Development Software how about... Java Development Software. Both NetBeans 3.6 RC2 and Eclipse M8, two Popular Java IDE's *gasp* came out with Mac versions at the SAME TIME as PC, Linux, etc. versions.
