> and so far, it has given them a browser with less than 0.5% marketshare that is not yet of good enough quality to replace IE for them.

neither has it been released yet (netscape 6.0 and 6.01 don't count, it was simply not useable for most people)

> Even when Mozilla hits 1.0, remember that Mozilla is not for end users.

nope, but it does mean it's finally useable for everyone (users, and for projects based on Mozilla (Netscape)).

> If there's a Netscape 6.5 or even 7.0 release after Mozilla 1.0 is released, there's no reason why more people should adpot it than adopted 6.0.

it being far better perhaps? sure, for quick adoption amongst the average user it will have to be bundled with AOL, but this doesn't mean it won't be adopted at all. it just means things will go alot slower.

i agree that it is bad news, but by no means catostrophic. but we'll just have to wait and see :)
