Gervase Markham recently posted his feelings on what a 1.0 release of Mozilla would be. Gerv has sent us the follow-up to that posting, including much of the feedback he received. To read it, click the full article link. Once you have read through it, we welcome you to post your feelings on what you think a 1.0 release would have.

You should take that arguement to Netscape and other distributors then. Mozilla should not be your prsonal backdoor to Netscape management. Saying that because Netscape isn't catering to its audience means that Mozilla has to start catering to a completely different audience (Netscape's) is like saying that because the Campbell's soup company has really ugly soup cans no consumer would want that all the mushroom growers and tin can manufacturers have to become graphic designers and provide cambell's with the soupcans, the mushrooms and the can labels.

I'll say it again. I'm all for making the task of doing a distro as easy as possible and that means, in part, that Mozilla needs to make a usable codebase that doesn't require a lot of extra tweaking. But to say that pixel perfect UI is a stopship for 1.0 is completely rediculous.
