Replace Thunderbird!

Postby Zwopper » Fri Dec 28, 2007 4:47 am

...with Evolution!
The calender in TB is not available in Swedish and for some of my older(non-English-speaking) friends it's no good, with the mixed languages and besides Evolution is a really good application!

We made the choice to replace Evolution with Thunderbird. It is possible to install Evolution if you want to use it....

I know and I do! :-)
...but then again, someone who is non English speaking and new to Linux could possibly be scared off, which would be a pity.

Söta bror, dere lærer vel engelsk på skolen vel? :P

I don't see why anyone would be scared just because one app was not translated into their native language.

And "sweet brother" is what Norwegians have been calling Sweden/Sweds for a long time. Norway and Sweden is basically the same, just that we have oil and they have education. :P
