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 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.

#36 Asa's right.

I didn't even realize half of there projects existed before now. I mean the Mozilla on the Amiga platform?!?! Sounds ridiculous, because there are almost no Amiga users left, but the principle behind porting Mozilla to the Amiga is very interesting.

MozOffice is starting back up again and it's a great thing. OpenOffice is making a good attempt at being cross platform, but I don't know if people even thought about porting it over to the Amiga yet (it looks like a couple actually have). Once again, sounds very ridiculous to talk about MozOffice and Amiga, but it points to a possibility that one day, if you can compile Mozilla on the platfrom, you get a ton of applications on top of it for free. Perhaps I just described part of the OEone vision, except that OEone only runs on Linux.
