Mozilla Becoming More Popular at University of Houston

UPDATE! Boris writes in with some details about Mozilla support at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology: "I saw the article about University of Houston, and figured folks may be interested in what other universities are doing... So here's the official take on Mozilla at MIT. Note the 'mozilla has recently been made the default Web browser for Athena Linux and Sun machines' part; Athena is the system of publicly available computers on campus.

"They've also been considering making the switch to Mozilla as the major supported mail client but ran into some issues with it, it seems.

"Finally, we made the math department's tip of the week!"

Are there any other Mozilla-friendly universities out there? Post your comments to this article.

huh? I don't want to sound like the guys at slashdot who always question if "this is really news for nerds, stuff that matterts", but really, is there some hidden point to this story that I'm missing? University students use Mozilla, IE still #1 - now that's shocking. Reminds me of The Onion articles, "Area Man considers ordering salad at McDonalds" etc.

ps. though I've never posted here before I've read MZ for months and I do enjoy it a lot, one bad (IMO) story in six month is not bad. Keep up the good work!
