Standardizing on Mozilla?

Thursday July 3rd, 2003

Slashdot today asked "Which Organizations Have Standardized on Mozilla?" A lot of good stories and ideas about trying to get an organization to switch to Mozilla based solutions.

...before organizations decide to standardize on Mozilla mail, there needs to be some good reasons for them to switch from something they have which is already working. That's a steep uphill battle in most companies, if not impossible.

Although Mozilla browser does have some very compelling features, I have yet to see an article that makes Mozilla mail appear much better than the competitors. Plus, Mozilla has a reputation of loosing data (whether truthful or not) and most people don't want to risk their e-mail archives on a "possibly better" client. And looking at the slashdot comments, lots of people believe that it crashes alot too (possibly leading to the data loss I mentioned).
