I especially liked the update on Thunderbird. I'm about to stop whining about Thunderbird's archiving capability, and I've gathered up a few thousand messages that I'm about to transfer from one T-Bird installation to another, so it's nice to know that Mozilla is planning to keep working on the client.

The ext4 update was also interesting. I always wonder why all those "other" filesystems never seem to get much traction with users, and it was nice to see it put into perspective. I had never before heard of Google's dislike of journaling (and therefore continued use of ext2). Very interesting, indeed.

If you like Thunderbird then you're going to love their new indexing engine called Gloda. David showed off full-text search in a message box serevral thousand messages long that returned all results within a second. Very impressive.
