Yes. And Netscape should have been the RedHat of Mozilla. Does the Netscape brand still has some value? I mean, when I hear about it I think on failure and opportunities going, even considering the MS antitrust.

This may explain why Netscape is where it is. Of course this is not the only reason: there is AOL, that released a Netscape based on pre alpha Mozilla.

So, I agree with the idea of the "need" (as I see it) for a third company to be capacle of offering a consumer oriented Mozilla: give it a cool name, add some bells and whistles here and there, promote it heavily, team with partners, find profit on all these and take Mozilla to the scenery.
