mozilla.org Releases 0.9.2.1

Tuesday August 14th, 2001

mozilla.org today released the source code for 0.9.2.1, which is the code that matches Netscape 6.1. This comes from the 0.9.2 branch, and is being made available both as part of the MPL license requirement, and as a way for third parties to easily use it to write compatible plugins and addon features to Netscape 6.1, as well as Mozilla.

The difference is that Microsoft is a monopoly, and monopolys have to play by stricter rules. For example, it's illegal for a monopoly to use its marketshare to put competitors at a disadvantage, unless they can show that the consumer benefit outweighs the anti-competitive aspects. That's what the appeals court just decided in Microsoft's trial.

In this case, there's no plausible consumer benefit, and significant anti-competitive impact, so it seems to me that this is probably an illegal action on MS's part.
