Full Article Attached OEone Scales Back Calendar Development

Wednesday March 19th, 2003

Mike Potter, who leads the development of Mozilla Calendar, has posted a newsgroup message about the project's status to netscape.public.mozilla.calendar. Most of the current work on Calendar is funded by OEone, who utilise its code in their HomeBase Desktop application. However, a change of priorities at OEone means that Calendar will not be receiving the same level of development attention as in the past. While work on the project will not stop altogether, the rate of progress is likely to be slower than that seen previously.

That's a pretty lousy analogy, don't you think? Note to everyone: it's not useful to make comparisons to Microsoft because Microsoft is rather unique.

But to somewhat address your point, it's painfully obvious that Mozilla was tremendously over-scoped such that there was no chance they'd ever be able to get a competitive browser produced.
