...or you have a 64 bit processor with Linux! The new computers out
there are all 64 bit and a few people will invest money in a 32 bit
processor based out of pruduction/support PC.
In medio stat virtus (the virtue is in the average/middle), the ideal
solution should be a full featured client with the chance to use web or
mail just to read and submit messages. Anyway I understand that the
disadvantage of this solution is lack of a trusted authentication and
security over web/email.
As this topic was met too: threading in AltMe could be done if double
clicking a message a reference to it is inserted in the typed message
but this will probably need big changes both server and client side and,
last but not least, in the existing messages archives spread around all
those clients out there.
