Mozilla to Provide Many of LindowsOS 4.0's Advantages

Wednesday May 21st, 2003

Albert and Adam Hauner wrote in to tell us that the forthcoming LindowsOS 4.0 will ship with a customised version of Mozilla. In fact, many of the advantages that is touting over Windows XP — including spam filtering, tabbed Web browsing and popup blocking — are actually Mozilla features. Previously, LindowsOS shipped with a customised version of Netscape 7.0 ('s initial announcement of that decision got their over-excited PR department in trouble with AOL) but they announced a switch a few weeks ago.

Look at who is running that company. Judging by what I saw happen with and now what is happening to Lindows, it seems like he loves to twist any facts and set impossibily high expectations.

I hope that can knock some sense into him for not properly crediting Mozilla. You would think that he wouldn't want to tangle with AOL lawyers again, but it doesn't take a genius to figure out who's lawyers will be helping if this continues to be a problem.
