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.

Here at Helsinki University (note: Helsinki University of Technology != Helsinki University) CS department we don't really have what you could call a "default" browser. On Linux we have Mozilla, Opera, Netscape 4.x, whatever KDE and GNOME provide, and of course Lynx and w3m. On Win2K we have at least Moz and IE, probably Opera and Netscape too (can't say for sure since I haven't really checked the windows side of things). Use whatever you like, for most people that seems to be Mozilla on Linux.

Too bad Phoenix is not (yet) available, we have some low spec machines (Pentium MMX) that would surely benefit.

All that said, I still think this is a worthless story ;-)
