New Poll Up

Tuesday January 19th, 1999

There's a new poll online...

We had an interesting response to the last poll. A full 35% said that they would resolve to learn C++ this year so they can understand the source code. More intriguing, however, was the fact that 19% responded saying that they'd rather "sit back and watch everyone else participate".

If any of you reading this are in that 19%, we're curious to know what could be done to make you interested in participating in Mozilla development.

(1) I'm working on other free software projects. (2) I'm not enthusiastic about learning C++ (Much more complicated than C, while still keeping the memory leaks and segfaults.) (3) My main machine at work is an Alpha and last I heard Mozilla wasn't 64-bit clean, and (4) my x86/Linux box is connected to the world through Deutsche Telecom which charges by the minute for internet access so I'm not enthusiastic about big downloads. Need I supply more reasons?
