Full Article Attached Mail/News Performance Effort Underway

Friday November 2nd, 2001

Seth Spitzer today sent an update out about what the Mail/News team is doing to meet their goals for Mozilla 1.0. They'll be focusing almost 100% of their effort for at least the next two milestones (0.9.7, 0.9.8) on Footprint and Performance of the various parts of Mail, News, and Addressbook. Not only will they be focusing on it, they'll also be locking down their part of the tree and only accepting performance or footprint fixes. Very few exceptions will be made.

Red Hat was not formed to "save" Linux from obscurity or to manage its complexity. Nor was Cygnus formed to save GCC. They were formed to profit from already successful projects --- NOT "toys".

I don't know if you realize this or care, but you come across as terribly condescending. You're telling the people who built (for example) the GIMP, KDE and Apache that, regardless of what they've achieved, their projects must be "toys" because they are only volunteers and not blessed by corporate management and compensation.
