Pēc ilgiem laikiem atkal sadzirdēju par e-pasta klientu Eudora, kas tiek reanimēts ar Mozilla Thunderbird palīdzību.
According to Ars Technica the client is essentially Thunderbird with a Eudora skin. Keyboard shortcuts, toolbar icons, menu structures and behavior from Eudora are all present in the new Mozilla designed version. The new Eudora development team includes the same Qualcomm developers from the original Eudora team who are now providing their services in a voluntary capacity.
Kāpēc viņi to dara? Te būs atbilde.
Why is Eudora moving to an open source development platform?
QUALCOMM has decided not to remain in the email market because it is not in alignment with the core business or strategic goals. By moving Eudora to an open source product, QUALCOMM can exit the Eudora business while still supporting Eudora users and advancing the Eudora e-mail client at a faster pace than before, through the power of the open source development community.
Ļoti pareizs gājiens no QUALCOMM puses. Ja reiz grib pārtraukt šo biznesu, bet tajā pašā laikā negrib piekāst klientus.
