It has become painfully obvious to me that what developers want Mozilla to be and what users want it to be are two completely different things. Users don't want a cross-platform development environment- they want a fast browser. If Mozilla insists on delivering something other than a browser (which appears to be the current course), it is going to lose, because it is going to have forgotten the customer. Or rather, it will deserve to lose. AOL will ensure that doesn't happen- but that will be a hollow victory indeed. Anyway, I wish you all good luck in building what looks to be a fantastic and wonderful environment that no one except AOL members and Linux users with no better choice will ever seriously use.
