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.

You are replying to this message

its as if you were actually a troll script spitting out random statments whenebver anyone calls you on your bullshit... how does this:

"So I guess the current 95% of non-Netscape/Moz users aren't getting their email?

Let's stick to the real world, shall we?"

have anythign to do with substatiating your previous claim:

'No "commercial customers" were using the suite.'

come back when either A) you can hold a coherent conversation, or B) you pay someone to do it for you.
