I'm fully aware that everything starts small, and I never implied that "you can't win, so don't try." What I said was that the two things I brought up affect each other. I'm sure you agree with me on that. You say I've proved that no product has critical mass? I never proved that. Where did I prove that? I still believe in the possibility.
Let me just sum up the two things I said: the Mozilla platform will gain critical mass when it gains support from major companies and when its flagship product gains marketshare. We haven't reached this point yet.
To say that right now it has critical mass, is a statement made out of sheer excitement over how far Mozilla development has grown to this point. I'll admit that development has progressed, but it has not yet reached the turning point. The release of a major product will help give the Mozilla platform more visibility, but we'll talk critical mass when we come to it.
