Mozilla Thunderbird and Windows Live Mail: definition of bloat

Software spoils. But Mozilla Thunderbird and Windows Live Mail actually fulfill Letts’ law, Zawinski’s law and Furrygoats’s law at the same time.

Letts’ Law: All programs evolve until they can send email.

Zawinski’s Law: Every program attempts to expand until it can read mail.

Furrygoat’s Law: Every program attempts to expand until it can read RSS feeds.

Is there a Feeds button in WLM? Oh yes! In TB? Check the new account button and click “RSS News and Blogs.”

Can they create mail? Yep. Just click “New Message.”

Receive? Click “Send and Receive” or “Get Mail.”

No, that’s bloat.
