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.

At least now you admit that you are only guessing. Now if we could only get you to realize that making guesses does not result in statistics. Especially uneducated guesses.

Whether or not AOL users use AOL's proprietary interface for reading and posting to newsgroups is irrelevant. If they are using AOL's news interface then they are using news. The point being discussed was your claim that AOL users do not use news; you made that statement as part of your claim that hardly anyone uses news and therefore Netscape should not develop a new client.

The reality is that AOL users and non-AOL users both use news. AOL's software provides an integrated news client to its users. Netscape's software provides an integrated news client to its users.
