M13 Alpha - What's Next?
Thursday January 27th, 2000
Mozilla.org has declared M13 to be "alpha" which means Mozilla needs your attention and constructive bug reports as it pushes towards beta. Why not check out the latest builds and start using Mozilla more and more throughout your day?
Also, you can join the gathering in #mozillazine every evening. Talk about the latest builds, help clear out duplicate bugs, or just hang and chat. Point your IRC client at irc.mozilla.org, or, better yet, you can use the Chatzilla IRC client enabled in the latest builds (under the Tasks menu). Just start up the client, /attach moznet, and then /join #mozillazine. You'll probably want to change your nick from IRCMonkey to something more appropriate once you get connected. :-) You can also use the Java chat client on our chat page.

I don't know if you all have been following the mozilla efforts but there are a TON of people working on non-browser related components. These resources COULD have been utilized to get the browser done and there MAY have remained relevant (i know, diminishing returns of adding more people to software dev project).
secondly, firstly, microsoft DOESN'T bundle mail, news, editor and browser. secondly, ms has virtually unlimited resources.
this is not a question of what you personally like. this is a question of mozilla's very survival. the project absolutely cannot afford to expend its resources on non-critical items.
news flash: you will not be using net news in the real world!
