Reading the ReadMe file for Eudora 8.0 the other day, I found myself scratching my head a little bit.
Let me show you what I mean:
Whereas "Eudora" is a branded version of Thunderbird with some extra features added by the Eudora developers, "Penelope" is an extension (also called an "add-on") that can be used with either Eudora or Thunderbird. The Eudora installer includes the corresponding version of Penelope along with it so there is no need to install Penelope if you are installing Eudora. Most features in Penelope can be accessed when used with Thunderbird, but there are a few that require Eudora in order to work correctly and it's not something that gets tested.
I had to read that 3 or 4 times before I was relatively sure I understood what was going on. I can't help to feel like it couldn't have been written a bit more clearly somehow--or even illustrated with a bit of ASCII Art.
