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."

It is very disappointing the way mozilla respones to the topic. I do not know how mozilla supporters would feel if other company, say XX, use mozilla for their Office application. And they just say that XX mozilla is not the same as mozilla, and not make any confusion between office users or borwsers.
