Journal Journal: Converting Joe SixPack

I just converted another friend (and his g/f) of mine from IE + Outlook to Firebird & Thunderbird. Usually they're hooked right about the time you show them the tabbed browsing. You just have to remember to install Flash for them while you're setting it up. That brings my total up to 7 people I've switched away from IE and/or Outlook. I think my Office is going to Thunderbird from Outlook soon, we don't uses Exchange so their really isn't a reason to use the MS virus propagation platform.
