Five Years Ago: Netscape Announces Intention to Release Source Code

Wednesday January 22nd, 2003

On this day in 1998, Netscape Communications Corporation announced that it was planning to release the Netscape Communicator 5.0 source code to the public. Heralding the move as "bold" and "aggressive", Netscape described how it intended to "create a special Web site service where all interested parties can download the source code, post their enhancements, take part in newsgroup discussions, and obtain and share Communicator-related information with others in the Internet community." You'll know this site as mozilla.org.

What admin can't? Admins who have only administered through easy-as-pie GUIs and wizards. These people wouldn't go through the hurdles you just mentioned.

mm, that's an easy answer, and it allowed me to take a potshot at Microsoft Admins. Whee :)
