fredboboss sends news about Mozilla’s email client Thunderbird 3, whose release we noted last week. “Thunderbird 3 contains code from the French military, which decided the open source product was more secure than Microsoft’s rival Outlook. The French government is beginning to move to other open source software, including Linux instead of Windows and OpenOffice instead of Microsoft Office. Thunderbird 3 used some of the code from TrustedBird, a generalized and co-branded version of Thunderbird with security extensions built by the French military.”
