Phoenix and Minotaur to be renamed Firebird and Thunderbird

Monday April 14th, 2003

Asa Dotzler writes: "After months of discussion and further months of legal investigation, we're finally comfortable moving forward with new names. The new name for the Phoenix browser is 'Firebird'. 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."

kinda takes the steam out of the bitching around here (including my own peanut gallery comment)....

my father once got dragged unwillingly into some political bullshit, a judge friend of the family called him up and gave him this advice about how to deal with public controversy:

"like gas, it will pass"
