We Tekies, avoid elaboration, often implying
"it's so obvious, I won't insult your intelligence by a
detailed explanation".

Rather than lapseing into "it's a better experience", please
TRY to list some ways that "UnixAos is better".
And other reader TOO: try to analyse and write your subjective
impression of ETHO.
As  an example, for me, ETHO is the best that I've used, because:
1. less need to bob-head-upNdown from keybrd, since
  mousing allows heads-up operation.
2. Menuing replaces the need to REMEMBER with the cheaper
 task of RECOGNISING. ETHO's losely structured menuing sytem,
 allows the user to immediately add menu-items. Eg. in *.Tool

You've cut my reference to gmail: which uses TLS/SSL.
I added transmission-authenticate to the original TextMail.Mod
years ago.

Thanks for walking infront and taking the flak.

As often stated, his LEO is superb.

PS.Here's a paste from a text-browser of the US-cluttered-presentation:--

 Gmail by Google      _____________________________
[ Search Mail ]   [ Search the Web ]  Show search options
   Compose Mail   << Back to Inbox   [ Archive ]    [ Report Spam ]
  [ Delete ]    [More Actions...]      1 of about 64 Older >
   Folders        [ Go ]
     Inbox (69)
1. Illogical structure.

2. The 'inbox' hot link is presented twice.
 Each unique item must be ONCE in it's unique/logically-related location;
 not like a butterfly...
Obviously Google WANTS to confuse you and FORCE you to search around, so
that they can sell you something.
