Yet ANOTHER replacement for sendmail! Why??

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 82.192.250.149] on April 18, 2008 10:06 AM
There must be about a dozen wannabe "replacement for sendmail" programs now. I use Exim, a lot of people use qmail, or postfix, or MXM, or ... I can't be bothered to google for all of them. Why oh why do people waste their time re-inventing the wheel? It's not only a waste ot time; by fragmenting the user base, it means that a lot of these wannabes never build up enough of a user base to get really thoroughly tested.

And - when some clown decides to reinvent the wheel - why does Linux.com have to write about it?
