Firebird Database Project Admin Ann Harrison Interviewed
Monday April 21st, 2003
It's been a long and intense week since mozilla.org announced that the Phoenix browser has been renamed Firebird, to the dismay of much of the Firebird database community. In this interview with MozillaZine, Ann Harrison, an administrator of the Firebird database project and a partner in IBPhoenix, gives her thoughts on the dispute.
While Ann seems to be rational and all around nice, I think she's wrong saying it was "Well, deliberately, yes. Malicious, no". True, Asa was informed of firbirds "The database" existence <a href="<http://www.mozillazine.or…ewtopic.php?p=12290#12290>">before</a>, but I don't think it even passed by his head to think it would matter. It is a DATABASE, This is a Browser!
[quote] If Mozilla wants to use "Mozilla Firebird" — that may be acceptable in a legal sense. [/quote] Hmmm.. that is the case isn't it? Atleast acording to <a href="<http://www.mozillazine.or…le=3095&message=27#27>">bzbarskey</a>.
