Full Article Attached Astounding Comments From the WSP

Thursday July 20th, 2000

The WSP (Web Standards Project) now states that it is interested in released products more than compliance, and has released one of the most astounding pieces of work I have seen come out of their office.

The WaSP, a pseudonym which speaks for the whole WSP (or at least its leaders) has written a piece taking Netscape to task for failing to produce a browser in the allotted time limit. Click "Full Article..." below to read my response. For the record, I am not an employee of Netscape.

"Some of this is due to the nature of open source development: developers in an open source environment develop for themselves and other developers, not for mere users."

Plus open source developers only work when they have time. They are not bringing in a pay check for working on Mozilla like the internal developers are, so it's harder for them to justify devoting large portions of their time to Mozilla. If AOL wanted to get Mozilla out the door sooner they would need to devote many more paid developers to the project.
