The most useless software of the year award

As we all are aware of the frighteningly high editorial standards of freshmeat.net (ha ha), I have to wonder how MumabAs was accepted.

This MULTI-FUNCTION software is a GUI (graphical user interface) for, wait for it, “configuring which mailboxes mutt should watch for new mail”. Aaaaarrrggggghhhhh!!!

For those of you who don’t know, mutt is a MUA (mail user agent) with a text-based UI. Usually, “configuring which mailboxes mutt should watch for new mail” is a question of editing one (1) line in the config file. So, following this guy’s example, we’d have a different GUI program (each with its own freshmeat entry) for configuring each line in the mutt configuration file.

I really don’t care if someone wants to entertain himself by writing these useless pieces of software, but perhaps publishing it on freshmeat.net was not entirely appropriate.
