The new U3 USB mini-drives from Memorex are including Mozilla’s Thunderbird e-mail client as one of the bundled applications. This is yet another huge step for the open-source movement. Thunderbird will be accompanied by Migo (to manage personalized settings including IE favorites and desktop wallpaper, etc.), U-Safe (for password protection), and U3 Anti-Virus (powered by McAfee). The drives will be available in 256mb, 512mb, 1gb, and 2gb capacities.
Sure, it’s missing a portable Firefox but I’m as pleased as punch that Thunderbird might be getting some more exposure. The faster I can get rid of Outlook…the better off I’ll be in the long run.
