Pine: the best e-mail app everThere has been a lot of online coverage about eBay now owning 25% of Craigslist, the Web site and indispensable tool (for Bayareans, anyway) where I found my current job, my current apartment, and even a couple of dates. But in this piece in the Chron, Craigslist founder Craig Newmark says something that makes my Pine-lovin’ heart sing:
I sometimes use an Apple PowerBook, but for my purposes the Linux systems are snappier. Frankly, I do most of my work in e-mail, and I use a fairly old e-mail tool called Pine (a free e-mail program administered by the University of Washington).
So now I am aware of two other people who use Pine. Neat!

Four -- and you can even add me to your alpine counter ;) If you count Marissa Mayer ("VP, Search Products and User Experience at Google") then you have five: http://money.cnn.com/popups/2006/fortune/how_i_work/content.1.html
