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.

What is the point of telling us some people who you do not think use a news client?

Your claim was that "hardly anyone at all reads news groups anymore!"

There are millions of people who read news groups. I think that that qualifies as more than "hardly anyone."

Besides you have no basis for your statements about who is not using news.

There are AOL users who ARE using news. I see them post messages to newsgroups all the time.

There are also people in non-technical positions in corporate America who use news clients for accessing newsgroups on the Internet, on intranets, and on extranets.

It is becoming more and more apparent that you are the one living in your own dream world where you create statistics out of thin air.
