I still don't see any reason to change the default mta to a total
different make. exim4 is the natural sucessor to exim, and has all the
necessary features of a real mta. I have not read any bare fact here
what postfix can do better than exim4, but only more or less loose
claims.  And I for myself am conservative and make only small changes
unless there is enough profit from the greater change. And the smaller
change is certainly to take exim4, and I don't see the profit from the
farer change.

And: Nobody is trying to throw postfix out. It just the question which
mta suits new users best as default, and which has the smoothest
upgrade path. Everyone can install another mta without ado.
