Phoenix and Minotaur to be renamed Firebird and Thunderbird

The documentation and product strings will be updated soon. In addition to securing Firebird, we've also got the OK from those contributing legal resources to use the name 'Thunderbird' for a mail client. Hopefully this will be the end of naming legal issues for a while."

We gonna use the mozilla word in the setup too .. The next Version of the Firebird SQL server will be named Mozilla 1.6 (nice :) )

By the way why don't you use the MySQL name for the next Mozilla split browser ? It is NOT used by many (open source ) projects and it is TM free Why not Oracle or MSSQLServer ... That is a better name for a Browser ....
