That's because someone *taught* them to open a terminal and type "pine"
to read their email. Not because the desktop sucks. They did not find
Pine themselves and think "mmmh.. this sounds like a cool mail program!"

The majority of people is *not* interested in how a computer works, they
just want to get this email sent, or this document written. And they do
it the way they always did. Usually it is the way *someone* taught them
to do it the first time years ago.
