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.

#147 Your "point" is beyond irrelevant

First of all, your calculation of 4+ years is wrong.

Secondly, if the "prototype" were "fully functioning" then it would not have been a prototype, it would have been a released product.

Thirdly, the prototype and codebase that you are referring to were for a suite from the beginning.

Fourthly, even if the decision had been made to focus on just a browser, the previous codebase would have still been scrapped in favor of the rewrite.

Fifthly, if the previous codebase had not been scrapped in favor of the rewrite then Mozilla would really suck and more than likely would have totally died by now.

Sixthly, if Mozilla were only a browser with none of the other components then it would be used by far fewer people than it is now and it would have received far less support from various companies and individuals.

Seventhly, it is dificult to squeeze so many false premises and conclusions into your posts, but somehow you accomplished it anyway. So it is not really surprising that you are able to exaggerate how bad a good decision was.
