Linux Makes Granny Cry

First off, a round of applause for this Website designed with the Linux newbie in mind. Anyway, let’s get on with it. Today ‘Granny’ shares her love of simple to use email clients like Kmail. Granny then goes on to boast about how much fun it can be to use the text editor know as Kate. Boy, it looks like this is one software lover who knows what she likes!

Dear Linux friend,
It’s so nice to have you visit and read my new article on the joys of Linux use. I know you think an old fogie like me can’t possibly enjoy Linux, but I DO, I DO! This week let me share with you how fun it is to use Linux.

I am so pleased to install a new updated Linux that comes with even more goodies. Let’s look at some of my favorite programs that are just so practical and helpful and good.

I installed KDE. It is frothing with useful tools that are included for FREE, but you know that already don’t you? This really means a lot to an old lady on social security.

KMail , a great beginner mail program with a very easy to use interface

Emailing is easy even for me thanks to those fabulous programmers, especially my dear sweet Stefan Taferner, the original writer and those two guys who’ve chosen to keep it alive and going: Ingo Klocker and Don Sanders. But thanks also go to the many programmers who worked on the code, added encryption etc. I love you all!

I know it is true that Xamian Evolution is so much more powerful. But I’m just looking for something simple and very easy to use for my basic emails.

KMail makes sending emails to friends, and especially my adorable little grandkids, a cinch. I open the program, write my mail, and press the send button. Wallah, it works without a hitch. So simple even I can’t bobble it up! [Read the rest]
