This sounds pretty cool, but i am still not sure what they are tring to do.

They talked about placing Mozilla whare IE has short-cuts like the search internet icon, ect...

And they are going to make Mozilla the default browser helping make it launch faster?

Say i type in <http://www.news.com> in My Computer address bar would it use Mozilla instead or would it just use IE? Or do they even plan to do this much integration with Mozilla?

They are trying to find all the places where MS hooks IE into the OS, and allowing the user to link in Mozilla instead.

When is Netscape going to integrat NN and Linux?

Accually, netscape doesnt have to do this, cause both are open source.

Is the source code to the openGL API given out freely? I think it is, cause thats why they call it 'open'

"Integrating" mozilla and unix is much less than it sounds. All you need is a file manager that uses mozilla windows. Pick any file manager (Xfiles ?) and create some hook in it to create html and execute mozilla - presto! Integrated.

"source code to the OpenGL API"? By definition, APIs don't *have* source code.
