Shock as MozillaZine Readers Turn to Slashdot for Accurate Information

Thursday October 31st, 2002

For our last poll, we asked you where else you go to get Mozilla news. 848 of you answered with Slashdot getting 30% of the vote, almost twice as much as its nearest rival, MozillaNews, with 17%. The third-placed 'None of the above' option was favoured by 16% of you, which frankly tells us very little. FUD specialist MozillaQuest came in fifth with 8% of the vote, which concerns us slightly. 5% of you rely on mainstream tech news sites such as CNET's News.com or eWeek while 4% of you prefer the weblog style of Blogzilla. Newcomers Planet Mozilla and MozFan didn't do so well with 1% and 0% of the vote respectively. NewsForge, with 1%, also did surprisingly badly, especially considering the amount of news we steal from them. Finally, 14% of you just go wherever telnet to port 80 will take you.

For our next poll, we'd like to know what your favourite Phoenix theme is. The options are taken from the lists at the mozdev Themes project and David Tenser's Phoenix Help so don't blame us if your favourite theme isn't listed. Go and vote now or just sit on the fence and watch the latest results.

"The Phoenix way gets things done much faster and is far less bureaucratic."

Yes autocracy is usually more efficient than bureaucracy.

However, your response to his statement seems to have missed his point. He said "Personally, I like the attitude of the Mozilla developers more than the Phoenix guys" and "Phoenix developers think they know better than I do about how I want to browse." So obviously his issue with Phoenix development has nothing to do with how quickly they get things done.

If someone does not like the decisions being made, pointing out how fast the decisions are being made does not make them more appealling.
