"Thunderbird 2 is now available for download on Windows, Mac and Linux in over 35 languages. Thunderbird 2 offers easy ways to manage and organize your email with message tags, advanced folder views, message history navigation, find as you type, and improved new mail alert notifications. Thunderbird 2 also includes a refreshed user interface and support for Microsoft Vista.
"We also want to extend a huge thanks to everyone in the MozillaZine community for their help and support with Thunderbird 2 over the past year. We wouldn't have been able to release Thunderbird without you. A special thanks to the awesome forum moderators who spend so much time answering questions and to the folks who help organize and participate in our weekly test threads here at MozillaZine."
Important note: "Thunderbird 1.5.0.x users will be offered Thunderbird 2 via software update at a later date. Those wishing to upgrade now are therefore advised to download and install Thunderbird 2 manually."

What conditions do Web 2.0 startups have to meet to make sure they can't easily be replaced (because of zero switching cost) by another application, or to make sure that they add enough value over their desktop counterparts to be competitive? The answer lies in the very definition of Web 2.0 and the multitude of possibilities it provides. Simply using the web as a platform is not going to cut it any more — the community is the key to the growth of almost all big Web 2.0 success stories."

What API disasters have you experienced?
Tell me about your API nightmares.
APIs that changed, didn't work, had bad documentation, poor presentation format, were hard to work with, had a buggy core product, had lousy developer support, etc.
Help me compile my research into API Marketing, and ride my coattails into oblivion!
Actual research findings, URLs, and citations coming soon. Stay tuned.
