How I became more "pure" with no effort
I am going to be very frank on my blog: I am a pine user. Yes, I admit it. In fact, I've never really lied about it, but I did obfuscate my email headers so people wouldn't harass me.
"So what ?" I hear you say. Well, for one it made me less pure. It was never free software and I was tainted... But I really did try to withdraw from using pine. In the last 13 years I had 3 attempts to move to mutt and even with the help of close friends, it was all in vain.
It made me less pure and you can tell from the eyes of the community and the voices whispering. "That is the guy who uses something non-free..."
Well, now you all stand corrected, because since more than a month I have lost one weight. Since alpine went public I can now use my beloved key-combinations, filters, templates and all that. With Eric, Bruce and Richard on my side, I am free !

PS: Although I seriously doubt all three of them to coexist in one room :)
