Well, the Amiga did have a head start, Linux is less than 19 years old. But the answer would be none, because someone would fix the code.

And millions use Outlook, your point is?
The worst thing about this problem, and it affected Outlook too, is that it didn't affect YAM users because their mailer didn't do proper threading. So they were happily breaking threads and spoiling things for the rest, and when told about it the general attitude was "it works for me so I don't care".
If it finally respects the standards, good, but it flouted them for long enough to leave a bad taste with those that did not use it but had to suffer its vandalism.
